The Nature of Goods and the Goods of Nature:Why anti-globalisation is not the answer, by Prof. Estefania Santacreu-Vasut and Tom Gamble, published by Imprint Academic
‘This is a little gem of a book explaining simple economic concepts that have big implications on important topical issues like social networks, economic convergence, innovation, environment, trade, globalization and immigration. The explanations sparkle with sweet little stories particularly of a professor and her acute student, and the ease of exposition made with infectious enthusiasm and very useful examples. I expect the book to attract a large non-specialist readership.’

'Amazir is a beautifully evocative novel, full of the colours, smells, and atmosphere of Morocco. Tom Gamble has written a brilliant first novel – the first of many, one hopes.'
Historical Novels Review
36 Exposures: 'Gamble's poetry is humorous, philosophical and honest. I would compare Gamble to Larkin due to their use of gritty realism, intelligent vocabulary, and eloquent turn of phrase, used to subdue, and then shock the reader. This is accomplished work.'
