About Us
PtS is a specialist publishing house that provides high quality, well researched information and editorial on a wide range of topics delivered primarily over the internet.

We have found that much of the information on the Internet is wrong, carries far too many adverts, is unclear and incomplete. We are trying, in our own way, to solve these problems by creating a range of high-quality book-like websites which provide clear expert-based information on a wide range of human interest topics. What's more we have no direct advertising and therefore no editorial bias.

We create all of our content painstakingly by researching up-to-date information using an in-house team of editors who work with a wide range of highly qualified UK based subject matter experts.
