John Hudson has worked in publishing for longer than he’d care to admit, mainly in the specialist and professional sector which rarely troubles the bestseller lists, (although the Highway Code is the unglamorous bestseller which is easily forgotten, and he used to be responsible for selling two million copies annually).
