  • New World Library is a San Francisco Bay Area-based American publisher of books for adults and children. The press focuses on publishing books concerning the mind, the body and the spirit. The company was established in 1977 by authors and Shakti Gawain under the name Whatever Publishing. Total sales in 1977 were $800. The firm's first three books were written by Marc Allen; and the fourth book they published, Shakti Gawain's Creative Visualization, released in December 1978, became an international bestseller. Under the guidance of Sky Canyon (aka Jon Bernoff), who was President and Publisher from 1979 through 1986, the book has sold over 3 million copies in North America to date, and another 3 million copies worldwide. The success of Shakti's book launched the new company as a source of books for the creative and New Age communities. The company's name changed from Whatever Publishing to New World Library in the mid-1980. The company is located in Novato, California and has 18 employees. In 2000, New World Library entered into a joint venture with H J Kramer, the publisher of Dan Millman, Sanaya Roman, and John Robbins's seminal Diet for a New America. In 2001, New World Library began publishing the works of Joseph Campbell. As of 2019, there are 18 books in his series, including a revised edition of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which has sold over half a million copies. In 2007, New World Library acquired Inner Ocean Publishing, involving the purchase of 45 titles, including books by MoveOn, Jean Houston, and Barbara Marciniak. New World Library has worked with distributor Publishers Group West (PGW) since 1978 which makes it PGW's oldest distribution client.
