Matt Ridley is one of the most perceptive and informed voices on the Coronavirus crisis. His insights as a journalist, biologist and best-selling author are proving invaluable in aiding understanding of the unfolding story.

In an exclusive event on Zoom for Reaction subscribers this Wednesday (noon until 1pm) editor Iain Martin is interviewing Matt about his new book – plus Coronavirus, potential treatments, the search for a vaccine and hopes for economic revival after the pandemic.

This event is for Reaction subscribers. Subscribe here – £6 per month – and we’ll send you an invite to the event.

Matt’s new book – How Innovation Works – has been delayed by the crisis, and will now be published on June 25th.

We’ve also arranged £5 off the book for Reaction subscribers when you pre-order online at Waterstones. All subscribers who register for this event will be sent the discount code.

There will be a chance for those joining  to ask questions.
