New Book Series Profiles History’s Greatest Movers and Shakers
Written by prominent scholars, academics, and other experts, the "Great Lives" series is specifically designed for a general audience. It offers engaging and accessible introductions to many of the men and women whose genius profoundly changed their world and, in many cases, ours. The books not only illuminate their subjects' lives, but, especially in the case of writers, also offer significant insights into their bodies of work.
"People love to discover and explore the lives of history's great men and women," says Charles Carlini, founder of Simply Charly and CEO of Carlini Media. "However, we've found that they relate better to books that are concise and written in an interesting, attention-grabbing manner. Ours are exactly that: brief, but comprehensive and compelling. And that's why we used the word 'simply' in the titles."
The first slate of books—which includes Simply Darwin, Simply Dirac, Simply Dickens, Simply Faulkner and Simply Wittgenstein—will be released in digital form at the end of April 2016, with print versions to follow. Additional titles in the series, focusing on Ernest Hemingway, Jane Austen, Alfred Hitchcock, James Joyce, Richard Wagner, Rene Descartes, Virginia Woolf, and many others, will be published later this year.
The e-books are priced at $7.99 and paperbacks at $8.99.
The series has garnered considerable advance praise and critical acclaim. David Paroissien, editor of Dickens Quarterly, called Paul Schlicke's Simply Dickens an "eminently accessible portrait, expertly blending the contours of Dickens's multivalent activities with commentary on his development as a novelist."
Similarly, David Sepkoski, Research Scholar at Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, said that Simply Darwin—whose author Michael Ruse is one of the world's foremost experts on the history of evolution—"provides an entertaining, stimulating, and provocative account of the life and legacy of Charles Darwin. This is one of the best short summaries of the topic available."
