2015 - How to Learn to Sail
This is the latest of Richard Shrubb's books. For The Boating Hub, Richard wrote a book on sailing qualifications and sailing courses that are available in your home country. Until he was asked to do it, there was no such reference available anywhere in the world and it could take a long time to figure out what qualifications you can get to learn to sail in Singapore, Japan or even parts of Europe and the US!

2013 - Beat Stress, Feel Better
Richard co-wrote this book published by the Men's Health Foundation, that is designed to show men that there are ways of making yourself feel better when it is all going horribly wrong. With suicide one of the biggest killers in men between the age of 20-40, this book is designed to reach out to the thousands of men who might otherwise take extreme action to resolve their problems.
2007 - Giving Voice to the Inner Scream
Newly qualified with his Master's Degree in broadcast journalism from University College Falmouth, Richard was unaware of the power of the stigma associated with mental illness, until he told a major international news organisation who were in the process of recruiting him for an internship. Cutting a long story short, due to poor representation he lost the discrimination case against them and got a bee in his bonnet - why is the stigma of mental illness more disabling to some people than the illness itself?
Richard lashed out in the best possible way, publishing a book on the subject. It is now out of print but you can download the PDF from this website here: Giving voice to the inner scream
