We’re thrilled to welcome Ten Speed Press to Random House, Inc., acquired as a part of The Crown Publishing Group!
Founded by Philip Wood in 1971, Berkeley, California-based Ten Speed Press has built a reputation for publishing editorially distinctive, critically acclaimed and perennially popular books in the business and career, cookbook, and mind, body, and spirit categories. In addition, the company is known for its award-winning children’s books, as well as for its eclectic and commercially successful line of pop culture titles. Among the books published by Ten Speed Press are Richard Bolles’ What Color Is Your Parachute?, the bestselling job-hunting book in the world with more than 10 million copies sold and Mollie Katzen’s classic The Moosewood Cookbook (more than 2 million copies sold).
Distribution of all Ten Speed Press titles, which is currently handled by the company, will be assumed by Random House, Inc, effective May 1, 2009. Until then, booksellers, librarians, and distributors can continue to place orders with Ten Speed Press through their normal existing channels.
I, myself, am especially looking forward to working with books such as Give the Bitch Her Chocolate and Purry Logic–How fun are they?
