Who we are ...

In a previous century, we were university lecturers and statisticians in the oil and transport industries. In this one, we wrote a best-selling book on Chinese characters before turning to epidemiology, the Bowen Technique and the psychology of climate change.

Recently Laurence has been Chairman of a climate policy NGO, and he has given evidence to Select Committees of the UK House of Commons.

We live near Hay-on-Wye with far too many books (most of which are Laurence's).

We'd love to hear what you think of Framespotting, so please send an email to hi{at}

We do talks!

If you'd like a lively and thought-provoking talk on framing we can oblige! The one we did for the Hay Festival Winter Weekend was a sell-out and the feedback was excellent. You can listen to the talk by clicking here.

Send an email to hi{at} if you're interested.
