About Mike Buchanan

Mike Buchanan is a 52-year old British author, with five books written and published since 2008. The first was published and distributed internationally by Kogan Page, the later books were published and distributed internationally by LPS publishing (www.lpspublishing.co.uk). The books are: 'Profitable Buying Strategies: how to cut procurement costs and buy your way to higher profits' The book was 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. 'Guitar Gods in Beds. (Bedfordshire: a heavenly county)' The colourful lives of eight guitarists living in or near Bedford, the author's adopted home town, as related by themselves. '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.' 'The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings?' A critique 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' '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 author is currently working on a guide to self-publishing, which he plans to follow with his first work of fiction. He confidently anticipates that the latter will win the Pulitzer Prize.
