At Adams Media we believe “Value looks good.” For over 20 years our company has built its reputation on providing practical and meaningful content that purposefully inspires, informs and impacts the lives of our readers . And today more than ever, we’re packaging that content in accessible and innovatively designed formats, from authors who are recognized experts in their fields—all while offering a value for our consumers.
On our list you’ll find a broad range of non-fiction topics--the latest on things that today’s readers want to know more about: Business and careers, parenting, pets, personal finance, self-help, travel, weddings, writing.
Key to our success in these areas have been single title break-outs in the self-help category including the national bestsellers, Why Men Love Bitches, Please Stop Laughing at Me, Verbally Abusive Relationships, as well as the teen hit, Mean Chicks, Cliques and Dirty Tricks. Career and business bestsellers like Martin Yate’s Knock ‘Em Dead and Stephan Schiffman’s Closing Techniques have helped millions of people find jobs, and then excel in them.
With over 300 books in 25 categories, our benchmark Everything series offers all you need to tackle a difficult project, gain a new hobby, or comprehend a fascinating topic. The Streetwise series is a one-of-a-kind line dedicated specifically to the informational needs of the small business person. And our Cup of Comfort and Small Miracles titles continue to inspire millions worldwide with touching and true stories.
New imprints like Polka Dot and Platinum Press are outgrowths of our core single-title successes in the Business and Self-Help categories and are already making an impact with features in national media including Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Fast Company and The New York Times.
