Books,  Long Reads  &  Deep Dives

In order to improve their accessibility and readability, the most popular parts of the Understanding the Civil Service and Understanding Regulation websites are being republished as slim paperbacks, Kindle eBooks, and PDFs (to print at home).  These are listed below, together with similar material published by other recent civil servants.

I strongly encourage you to join my free subscription service through which you will be notified whenever I publish new or substantially amended material. 

The paperbacks are nicely designed and printed, and will in due course comprise an attractive set.  If production costs allow, the shorter booklets are priced around £4.00, and How to be a Civil Servant is normally £12.99. but they provide a great way to have their information permanently and quickly available.

If you prefer reading eBooks then please try the Kindle versions of these publications. They are currently only £2.50 except for How to be a Civil Servant,

Alternatively, you can download free PDFs of the shorter booklets,


Most of the above titles are published by Richborne Publishing, the business name used by Martin Stanley.   Its email address is and its postal address is 68 Richborne Terrace, London SW8 1AX.
