New Fact-Lite history book launched by TMB Books

TMB Books (the publishing division of the Tripe Marketing Board) has today announced the publication of its latest book, Forgotten Yorkshire and Parts of North Derbyshire and Humberside.

Forgotten Yorkshire (RRP £9.99)
The book, by celebrated Ossett librarian Dr. Eric K. Shipley, shines a light on some hitherto unknown aspects of a county which - though the largest in Britain - is a mystery to many.  With chapters on the Yorkshire music scene, profiles of towns and cities such as Ilkley, Scarborough, Hull (and many more), as well as a detailed examination of the age old question 'Was God a Yorkshireman?', this book will appeal to anyone who thinks history shouldn't be dry and dusty.

Commenting on the book, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "We hear a lot in the news these days about ‘fake news’, but rather less about ‘fake history’.  Under my guidance, I'm proud to have steered our publishing division firmly in the direction of what might be termed ‘Fact-Free’ or ‘Fact Lite’ history books".   

The book is currently available to tripe lovers for just £7.99 as part of a launch offer that extends until 7 November 2017.  It will also be available via selected bookshops and tripe retailers, where it will be offered free with every purchase of 50lb of honeycomb tripe.

"Let’s face it, most people are too busy these days to clutter their minds with useless facts, and I feel very strongly that a new approach to history is needed to awaken people’s interest," Sir Norman said.
