He is author of two books, Romps, Tots and Boffins – The Strange Language of News (Elliott & Thompson, 2013) and Would They Lie to You? How to Spin Friends and Manipulate People (Elliott & Thompson, 2014), which were both shortlisted for the Political Book Of The Year awards. Before he joined Bloomberg, Hutton worked on the Daily Mirror and the Financial Times. He is also an active tweeter, with over 25,000 followers on Twitter. He is married with two sons, and lives in south-east London.
His book about one of Britain’s greatest, but until now unknown, secret agents, Agent Jack: The True Story of MI5’s Secret Nazi Hunter, was published in the UK in September 2018, by Weidenfeld & Nicolson.
