About the Author:

Gareth Jones is a Professor of Management in the Lowry Mays College and Graduate School of Business at Texas A&M University. He received both his BA and PhD from the University of Lancaster, UK

Georgina Palffy worked as a travel editor for Cadogan Guides, a political and media analyst for an intelligence organization, a foreign affairs journalist at the "Guardian" and D"aily Telegraph" newspapers, and an art reviewer for a London listings magazine. She has also lived and worked in Rome for several years. Since moving to New Zealand in 2002, she and her family have been living 100 yards from the beach in Napier, art deco capital of Hawke's Bay. Married to a New Zealander, she didn't really want to come to the southern hemisphere in the first place, but has been converted to the easygoing charms of life on a South Pacific island.

Review:

"[The Big Ideas Simply Explained books] are beautifully illustrated with shadow-like cartoons that break down even the most difficult concepts so they are easier to grasp. These step-by-step diagrams are an incredibly clever learning device to include, especially for visual learners." – Examiner.com

"[The Religions Book is] at once egalitarian and open-minded, ideal for a visually oriented student of religion or anyone interested in scrambling up the mountainside of human spirituality and taking in the panoramic views." – BookPage
