If you are interested in writing about Free Ride or arranging an interview, please contact Kristen Gastler at Doubleday in the U.S. or Clara Womersley at Bodley Head in the U.K.

If you are interested in booking me as a speaker, you can find more information here. (I do not accept money to address companies I cover as a journalist, since I think it represents a conflict of interest.) If you want a picture or bio, you can find it here.

  1. Thank you, Robert for writing this book. Before I read it I just didn’t realize how much harm can bring downloading music and movies illegally – so I did it like everyone else. Now after reading it I want to go to a record shop and buy something and lend a movie from a library.

  2. Hello Robert,

    I’m planning on launching a piracy protection company within the next few months and I would love to have you as a mentor. Your literature is brilliant!
