Lifeofwellington.co.uk is home to the accompanying Commentary of Rory Muir’s two volume biography of Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington. The Commentary is the extended text from the first volume of Rory Muir’s definitive biography, Wellington: The Path to Victory, 1769-1814. Originally written by Rory Muir for his own use, Yale University Press is delighted to make it available to read online and as a free download.
“Other than their creativity and prompt responsiveness, Bookswarm’s strongest asset is their patience with clients like us, who keep suggesting new ideas and changes. With a team split between Cairo and New York, communication was very smooth, with time difference never being an issue. The final result for Hoopoe branding and website projects are proof of Bookswarm’s competence and commitment, and seeing Simon speak at London Bookfair confirmed we made the right choice.”
Basma El Manialawi, Marketing Manager, The American University in Cairo Press
“We’re a small independent publishing company which prides itself on being able to do everything in house, so we were initially reluctant to get any old company in to rebrand our online presence. However, Bookswarm aren’t any old company, and they’ve made the whole process unbelievably easy – we were looked after by two people who seem to answer questions immediately (however tedious or obvious), and we’re thrilled with the finished website. They’re also the only tech company I’ve come across which just “gets” books – they took this knowledge and tailored everything to our needs perfectly. On top of the sleek design, transparent way of working and hands-on help, the team have also proved to have an astonishing level of after-care, and are happy to help you acquire the skills to maintain and enrich the site for yourself. Would – and have – whole-heartedly recommend.”
William Dady, Editorial and Marketing Executive, Alma Books
“As soon as I started talking to Bookswarm about the feel that I wanted for my website I could tell that they were with me and understood what I was looking for. The resulting site is exactly what I had in mind and was achieved quickly and with the minimum of fuss. They were pro-active in making suggestions for things that I hadn’t considered and patient when I changed my mind. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
