W H Allen is to publish How Not to Be Wrong: The Art of Changing Your Mind by James O'Brien, with editorial director Jamie Joseph acquiring all rights directly from the author. The LBC radio host's How to Be Right was a Waterstones Book of the Month and a Parliamentary Book Award winner.
O'Brien said: "Where How To Be Right used callers to my radio show as lenses through which to examine and hopefully reverse wrongness, this book uses me, my life and my experiences to do the same. I will draw on my wisest callers and encounters with prominent people from a wide range of fields to work out why it seems harder than ever to admit to being wrong and how we might go about making it easier for each other and for ourselves.
"Having already turned me into a bona fide bestseller, there was never any question that W H Allen would have first refusal on my next effort and with Jamie and the team, I couldn’t ask for better support."
How Not to Be Wrong will publish in autumn 2020.
