I wrote on Monday to announce the publication of the new edition of "How to Own the World" this week. Today, I wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who took the plunge.

Thanks in large part to your response to that email, by yesterday morning - surreally enough - the book had managed to take the no 1, 2 and 3 spots (print, audiobook and ebook respectively) in Amazon’s “hot new releases in Personal Finance” rankings.

Sincere thanks to every one of you who ordered a copy!!

I also wanted to use this email to pass on a message from our publishers to any of you who might run a business or otherwise manage a team of some kind, or who might have a senior role at a charitable institution, educational establishment, sports club or even in government.

Put simply - for anyone interested enough in our mission to spread financial literacy as far and wide as possible - there is the opportunity to buy multiple copies of the book at a discounted wholesale price. Our publisher can even produce “special edition” copies with personalised logos on the book for anyone who might find that of interest.

As an example of the sort of thing: In late 2017, the UK MD of a FTSE 250 company ordered 100 or so copies of the last edition to hand out to his management team and senior sales staff.

We have also been approached by a number of secondary school teachers and university lecturers over the years, asking if they might be able to secure a large number of copies of the book to hand out to their students.

In the past, this was quite difficult for us to execute, purely in terms of admin’ and logistics really. Happily - with this new edition, Hodder & Stoughton are far better placed to cater to these sorts of requests.

As such - if you are reading this and you think that your colleagues, employees, students, team-mates or fellow investment-club members might get something out of the book - and quite possibly a personalised, branded version at that - please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

That's all for now. There is now less than 24 hours to go until the book is 100% available!

Thanks again and very best wishes.
