About Mike Buchanan

Mike Buchanan is a 53-year old British writer, with seven books written and published since 2008. They are, in reverse chronological order: 'David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman?', a critique of the influence of radical feminists - a small band of angry left-wing women - upon the British public policy agenda, among much else. The book explains why the prime minister is a supporter of radical feminism. 'The Joy of Self-Publishing', a book to encourage and inform writers intending to publish their own books. 'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded people', a dictionary of quotations (serious and amusing) supporting right-of-centre perspectives. The book's cover and preliminary pages are the only differences compared with the American edition, the imaginatively-titled 'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded Americans'. 'The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings?', a critique of the institution of marriage, which argues that most people in the developed world in the modern era are unsuited to the institution. Launched in a hardback edition, a paperback edition has since been made available under the title 'The Fraud of the Rings'. The book has attracted testimonials from two leading authors / psychologists: A highly original and stimulating critique of the modern marriage crisis, supported by important yet sometimes uncomfortable truths.A" Oliver James, clinical psychologist, broadcaster, author of 'Affluenza', 'Britain on the Couch', 'They Fxxx You Up', 'How NOT to Fxxx Them Up'. Mike Buchanan's analysis of marriage in western industrialised society is courageous and thoughtful. His perspectives on the challenges associated with marriage, and solutions to them, draw on important scientific evidence and arguments from some of our leading psychologists and wisest philosophers. This is a 'must-read' for all concerned with modern marriage.A" Alan Carr, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University College, Dublin, author of 'The Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology', 'Family Therapy' and 'Positive Psychology'. 'Two Men in a Car (a businessman, a chauffeur, and their holidays in France)', the tale of two long holidays in France in 2007 and 2008, enjoyed by the politically incorrect author (the 'businessman') and his equally politically incorrect friend Paul Carrington (the 'chauffeur'). Paul's life story is related in 'Guitar Gods in Beds. (Bedfordshire: a heavenly county)', a book which documents the colourful biographies of eight guitarists living in or near Bedford, the author's adopted home town. 'Profitable Buying Strategies: how to cut procurement costs and buy your way to higher profits', a book written during a sabbatical taken by the author after 25 years working at a senior level in the procurement of goods and services for major organisations. The author is currently toiling over his first work of fiction, which he confidently anticipates will win the Man Booker Prize.
