• Former trustee of British Muslims for Secular Democracy

 

2009 US speaking tour road trip (41 events in 39 cities, 13,934 miles by hybrid car) was conducted in March - May 2009.  

 

The response was so wonderful, he came back  for the US edition!

 

I actually also did a US speaking tour in 2009, with a trunk-load of the British book (full story below)

I love my US publisher, Center Street, an imprint of Hachette

50-City US Speaking Tour

USA

Originally published first in the UK, and then Australia, as Unimagined

 

Came to US/Canada as:

 

The Perfect Gentleman

with additional material and an extended ending

 

But in the UK we would write 3rd April, 2012

 

Why do you write month/day/year?  Surely day/month/year makes more sense?

 

 

Publication was accompanied by a 50-city US speaking tour!
