    I'm generally quite politically savvy and follow current affairs and world news.

    Has anybody read any of Professor Danny Dorling's books? [human geographer and activist].

    He is, from what I read very left wing and an advocate of an equal society.

    He seems to be very anti-capitalist, against austerity and right wing conservatism - leaning more towards an equal distribution of wealth. He addresses a completely contemporary approach to redistribution of wealth and tax system reforms which is refreshing and is unlikely to ever happen under the Tories.

    I watched a Facebook video of one of his talks, and he seems pretty interesting to say the least. Obviously, and I assume, he is well respected in his field (being an Oxford Professor), however, I don't know much of his Political credentials.

    Is it worth buying any of his books?

    I am big into egalitarianism and believe in an equal society for all, and to a lesser extent a free market, but one that is regulated, unlike that of the Conservatives that want a wholly privatised economy.
