Velvet Glove Iron Fist:
An interview with Chris Snowden
ECD: What prompted you to write the book?
Chris: Well, you know it was so long ago now I can hardly remember (laughs). It's a number of things.
It's really a book I wanted to read and I was quite surprised that there wasn't something like this already on the shelves. It's something I think is quite an important topic and there wasn't really a history of the whole subject which had been written.
I started reading more about it and realised that there was definitely a good book in it.
So that's the main reason, I am also interested in issues of how people get things done through campaigns with activism, I am interested in issues of personal liberty, interested in popular science and how people come to believe certain things so it had a bit of everything for me.
ECD: Has there been a lot of interest in the book?
Chris: It's going pretty well, yes. I get a lot of emails from people, sales have been doing okay, so yeah there are people interested in the topic for sure.
