About the author (2008)

Jim Blythe has been a Merchant Navy officer, ladies hairdresser, business consultant, rock musician, truck driver, company director, and playwright. All before becoming an academic! He s currently trying to learn to grow vegetables, with limited success, has started playing drums in a samba band, and is about to study for a degree in modern languages. You ll certainly be entertained by Jim s experiences and passion for learning.

Jim has written 18 books, over 50 journal articles, and has contributed chapters to 8 other books. He has also written open-learning packs for international training organisations, has been a senior examiner for the Chartered Institute of Marketing, holds four real degrees and one fake one, and therefore feels somewhat irritated that he is mainly known for winning the Cardiff heat of Come Dine With Me. Perhaps this latest edition of Consumer Behaviour will redress the balance a bit.
