New Harbinger Publications
For forty years, New Harbinger Publications has brought readers effective, scientifically sound self-help books that deal with a range of topics in psychology, health, and personal growth. Launched by psychologist Matthew McKay and writer Patrick Fanning in 1973, New Harbinger pioneered a style of self-help book that has become the standard of today. Fanning and McKay believed that the job of a self-help book was to teach readers skills they could use to significantly improve the quality of their lives. These books might inspire and enlighten in their own way, but they had to offer real tools for real change. McKay and Fanning’s writing partnership has yielded a dozen highly successful titles which have established the model for New Harbinger’s other books.
