Book Description

17 Dec 2010
A heart-warming and hilarious story about one geek's journey through school! Alan Gubbins is fed up with being the school nerd. Every day he receives wedgies and insults, especially at the hands of Chris Preston: bully, jock and all-round rogue. And so, after a particularly harrowing incident, Alan decides enough is enough. Enlisting the help of fellow nerds Gary and Veejay, he embarks on a personal quest that takes him from the mud and tears of a rugby pitch to the arms of a beautiful girl, all to achieve the ultimate prize: coolness.

More About the Author

Ben is a father of two and husband of one who lives in a small English town infested with pensioners.

He is a humorous writer who has been described as 'talented' by his wife and 'tolerable' by his mother. A journalist, features writer and Parentdish columnist, Ben also has his own award-winning blog at, where from time to time he'll post something utterly pointless yet somehow profound.

Ben is available for interview and press features, but draws the line at full frontal nudity.
