Next week, Biteback is publishing a series of books under the banner WHY VOTE? Each book lays out the main reasons for voting for a particular party. In addition to the volumes covering the Conservatives, Labour and the LibDems there are also books for the SNP, Plaid and the Greens.
Also, David Seymour and Jo Phillips have written a book aimed at the politically apathetic called WHY VOTE: A Guide for Those Who Can't Be Bothered. Jo used to be the editor of Sunday Service on 5 Live and this book is written very much in the humorous vein of that much missed radio programme.
All the books are £6.99 and are around 128 pages long. They are aimed at floating voters and those who simply want to inform themselves better about the policy platforms of the various parties.
If any politics teachers are reading this, the books are ideal to give candidates in mock elections.
You can preorder copies HERE.
* For those sensing a conspiracy against UKIP, I should make it clear that we commissioned them to write a similar book, but they failed to deliver a publishable manuscript in time. And no, we didn't ask the BNP. Go figure.
