What our authors say

“The publicity department, both in the US and abroad, was unparallelled in getting the book into the right hands, which allowed me to influence policymakers at the highest level. Any author would be lucky to work with HBR’s team.”

Joan C. Williams, author of White Working Class: Overcoming Class Cluelessness in America

“I’ve published books with many great publishers, but HBR Press is in a league of its own when it comes to promoting its authors and reaching the widest and most relevant audience. What you will experience...is an incredibly talented team that looks after each author like a true asset.”

Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, author of Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?

“HBR Press is the gold standard in book publishing. From my New York Times bestseller Reverse Innovation to my latest book The Three-Box Solution—the time and attention given to me by my editor was undoubtedly the key to each book’s success. Publishing with HBR is a true partnership.”

Vijay Govindarajan, Coxe Distinguished Professor at Tuck at Dartmouth College and Former Marvin Bower Fellow at Harvard Business School
