Signed book gift package - including P+P


How better to show you care than to give a carefully chosen book with a handwritten, personal message from the author? Especially when that author really cares and knows about young people. This gift package contains:

  • Your chosen book from the list below, signed to the person of your choice with an appropriate message – you can tell me if it’s for a birthday, or congratulations or good luck, or to give support after a difficult time, or to welcome the arrival of holidays
  • A set of postcards with my inspirational, reassuring, science-based advice – perfect to pin to a bedroom wall
  • A couple of posters with similar inspirational messages

UK delivery only. P+P is included.
