The home of notable books

Nicholas Brealey Publishing

Welcome to Nicholas Brealey Publishing, the home of notable books. Nicholas Brealey Publishing was eponymously founded way back in 1992 to publish a select list of enduring and forward thinking books focusing on big ideas and practical wisdom - alongside original voices in narrative non-fiction, notably in Travel and Adventure writing. This eclectic, curated approach to vigorously publishing only what’s new, special and well worth reading proved successful across the world and is very much our continued focus. As well as continuing to publish distinctive and exciting titles, we boast perennial bestsellers that are mainstays of their genre. The company has an award-winning list of books on coaching and leadership, personal development and popular psychology, smart thinking and the ‘big ideas’ in business and economics. We are home to some notable books, including the topical The Trouble with Europe, the bestselling The 80/20 Principle trilogy by Richard Koch, and the 50 Classics Series by Tom Butler-Bowdon on ‘the literature of possibility’. Our authors are some of the leading voices in their fields, including award-winning economist Roger Bootle, organizational development experts Peter Senge and Arie de Geus, and in psychology such internationally renowned renowned authors as Richard Nisbett, Gary Klein and Martin Seligman. With offices in London and Boston, our list has expanded and developed over more than two decades of international publishing. From our roots as a publisher of global business books including Richard Lewis’ When Cultures Collide and Fons Trompenaars’ Riding the Waves of Culture, we went on to acquire Intercultural Press in the US and an outstanding list of cross-cultural titles. We publish the world’s bestselling list of Coaching books, starting with Sir John Whitmore’s Coaching for Performance which has sold a million copies worldwide over its four editions, and then the leading US guide Co-Active Coaching with the acquisition of Davies-Black some years later, also expanding our list of books on leadership, human resources, career development and personality type (including the classic Gifts Differing.) We are proud to publish a world-class list of travel writing titles, including FT Book of the Year Swiss Watching, 2015 Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year finalist Walking the Woods and the Water, and the ever-popular Around India in 80 Trains. Swiss Watching and the recent Why the Dutch are Different are two of a growing number of titles on our list that paint a contemporary portrait of a people, its country and its culture. Now in its 24th year, Nicholas Brealey Publishing joined Hachette UK in June 2015 as part of John Murray Press. With The Gilded Chalet forthcoming this winter and looking forward to Spring 2016 highlights The Greats on Leadership and Dare to Do, Sarah Outen’s riveting account of her 30,000 mile, five-year loop of the planet by pedal and paddle, we are confident that this next chapter will be one of the most successful yet.

New appointments and acquisitions at John Murray Press

Hodder & Stoughton's new division John Murray Press has made key appointments in their sales and communications departments. Ben Gutcher, previously Digital Key Account Director at Hodder & Stoughton, has begun his new role as Sales Director for John Murray Press, overseeing sales across all five imprints within the new division: John Murray (Publishers), Hodder Faith, Consumer Learning, Two Roads and Saltyard Books. Hodder Publicity Director Rosie Gailer has been appointed Communications Director for the new division, and Lyndsey Ng has also moved across to the John Murray Press communications department as Publicity Manager. The moves come as part of the Hodder & Stoughton restructure, creating specialist sales, publicity and marketing teams for the divisions. It signals the start of an exciting second half of 2013 for John Murray Press, with highlight titles over the coming months including the much anticipated third volume of Patrick Leigh Fermor's travel trilogy, THE BROKEN ROAD, Michael Rosen's ALPHABETICAL, the official story of the discovery of Richard III’s remains THE KING’S GRAVE, and SCHOTTENFREUDE, the new book by bestseller Ben Schott. John Murray Press have also recently lined up a roster of high-profile titles for 2014 and beyond: John Murray Press Managing Director Nick Davies has acquired a new book by Amanda Vickery – the acclaimed historian, prize winning author and broadcaster will turn her gaze on the 1950s in MODERN GIRLS, a social history focusing on the lives of women in a period of enormous change. Davies struck a deal for UK & Commonwealth Rights with Clare Alexander at Aitken Alexander Associates. Davies has also bought rights to the letters of Roald Dahl, compiled by Donald Sturrock, whose 2011 biography of Dahl was widely praised. Dahl was a prolific letter writer from the age of 9 and for the last thirty years of his life he spent two hours a day on correspondence. Full of his wit and his darker, more troubled side, LETTERS FROM DAHL will be published to coincide with the Dahl centenary in 2016. Roland Philipps has struck a deal with Ed Victor for a new history of women in the twentieth century from acclaimed social historian Juliet Nicolson. Philipps has also secured World English language rights to a biography of Elizabeth Jane Howard by Artemis Cooper, author of 2012’s hugely acclaimed biography PATRICK LEIGH FERMOR. In a hotly fought auction, John Murray Publisher Georgina Laycock acquired WHAT IF? by ex-NASA scientist Randall Munroe, whose cult webcomic xkcd.com/ has had more than a billion page hits and featured in Wired magazine as one of their 20 key influences of the last 20 years, alongside Steve Jobs and online dating. WHAT IF (acquired from Caspian Dennis at Abner Stein and coming out in October 2014) will answer all your questions about science. In another auction, Laycock has just snapped up THE DARLEY ARABIAN, a vivid history of racing through the stories of 25 exceptional horses, from the Independent's award-winning racing correspondent Chris McGrath. The agent is Catherine Clarke at Felicity Bryan Associates and the book will come out in 2015. Meanwhile Publishing Director Eleanor Birne has also acquired two new titles: from Tracy Bohan at The Wylie Agency, a new book by Craig Taylor, NEW YORKERS, which will do the same for the US city as his much loved LONDONERS did for the UK capital and will be published in 2016; and from Barney Karpfinger at The Karpfinger Agency LILLIAN ON LIFE by Alison Lester, a brilliantly written, sassy debut novel that will appeal to readers of The Best Of Everything and fans of Mad Men. LILLIAN ON LIFE will be published in July 2014. Nick Davies says: ‘I am delighted to welcome Ben, Rosie and Lyndsey to the John Murray Press team. Their expertise is considerable and their passion for books infectious. They're already having a considerable impact on our strong autumn list and are helping to build an exciting new generation of writers here at John Murray.’ For further information or for more details on titles mentioned above, please contact Rosie Gailer: 020 7873 6452 or rosie.gailer@hodder.co.uk
