At Avery we publish nonfiction that doesn’t just change the conversation, it changes lives. Our books span a broad range of categories: health and wellness, psychology, lifestyle, inspiration, personal finance, plant-based cookbooks, and more. Our hallmark is our authors, leading-edge experts and paradigm disrupters who include Nobel Peace Prize recipients, James Beard Award winners, and #1 New York Times bestsellers.
We have recently been proud to publish the #1 New York Times bestseller Atomic Habits by James Clear, which in 2021 was the bestselling nonfiction book in the country three years after publication. Other notable authors include Joanna Molinaro (The Korean Vegan Cookbook), Judson Brewer, MD, PhD (Unwinding Anxiety), Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD (Fiber Fueled), Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW (Daring Greatly), His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu (The Book of Joy), Lisa Mosconi, PhD (The XX Brain) and Steve Silberman (NeuroTribes). We are likewise proud of our deep and bestselling backlist. Highlights include Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn, MD., The Wahls Protocol by Terry Wahls, MD., and perhaps the bestselling health and wellness book of all time: Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis Balch, soon to be in its 6th edition.
