Who is New World Library?
Their slogan is "Publishing Books That Change Lives, For Over Twenty-Five Years."
Co-founder, Marc Allen says, “The best thing about the business, as far as I’m concerned, is the large amount of mail we’ve received over the years from people who have been deeply affected by our publications. All I need to know is that I’ve made a positive impact on someone’s life — that makes it all worthwhile.”
New World Library publishes books and audios that inspire and challenge us to improve the quality of our lives and our world. The ultimate goal of the company is a sweeping one: personal and planetary transformation — awakening both individual consciousness and global social potential by publishing inspirational and practical materials in spirituality, personal growth, and other related areas.
New World Library has an active backlist of over 250 titles, including 25 audio titles.
New World Library publishes about thirty-five to forty new titles annually. Their books include those by Joseph Campbell, Eckhart Tolle, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Brother Wayne Teasdale, Riane Eisler, Echo Bodine, Mother Teresa, Richard Carlson, Alan Watts, Kent Nerburn, and, of course, Shakti Gawain.
One of its first books, Gawain’s Creative Visualization, became an international bestseller and has sold more than 3 million copies in English and been translated into more than thirty foreign editions.
Another success story is The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra. It has sold more than 2 million copies in North America and has been translated into more than thirty foreign languages. It was on both the New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists for over eighteen months.
