Welcome to a realistic, vibrant view of our robot future. With 60 colour photos.

Praise for Abuse of Trust
'Few books have managed to get to the heart of a story of abuse as thoroughly and accurately as Abuse of Trust. Its message is a chilling reminder of how charismatic abusers like Beck and, indeed, Savile, were able to operate so effectively and for so long in the system despite countless warning signs. The question this begs: could this happen today?'
Christian Wolmar, journalist and author
'An important and in-depth analysis of one case among the many, involving members of the 'establishment', where child victims of sexual crime, adult survivors and those professionals supporting them have been silenced and denied justice.'

Because We Are Bad by Lily Bailey
OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought
Canbury Press has published a candid account of a childhood marred by
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Because We Are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought by Lily Bailey (ISBN 9780993040726) is a story of confusion and recovery.
Reviews of Because We Are Bad
"I couldn’t put this book down. Intensely moving with flashes of black humour, Because We Are Bad is the compelling account of one young woman’s experience of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Bailey conveys with complete candour the obsessive thoughts and compulsive activity which began in childhood and engulfed her life, as well as her treatment and eventual recovery. I feel sure that this book will help many sufferers, their families and friends, and mental health professionals to better understand OCD."
