Former George Bush advisor pens book for W&N

Weidenfeld & Nicolson has acquired a book by a former economic advisor to George W. Bush, Dr Pippa Malmgren.

Alan Samson, non-fiction publisher at W&N, bought UK and Commonwealth rights to Signals: How Everyday Signs Can Help Us Navigate the World’s Turbulent Economy from Elizabeth Sheinkman at WME.

Dr Malmgren, who is also former head of global investment strategy at UBS Warburg, originally self-published the book through a crowd-funding venture and on publication went straight to number one in the finance section and to number two in the business section of Amazon.

The book will publish in hardback with W&N on 16th June 2016.
