No Comments on Publisher Profile: W.W. Norton & Company 88

Since 1923, W.W. Norton & Company has been an independent publisher of enduring titles in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and academics, by some of the most influential voices of all time. Some of Norton’s era-defining books include The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, Thirteen Days by Robert F. Kennedy, Present at the Creation by Dean Acheson, Liar’s Poker by Michael Lewis, and The 9/11 Commission Report. In recent decades, Norton’s national bestsellers have included books by Diane Ackerman, Andrea Barrett, Vincent Bugliosi, Andre Dubus III, Sebastian Junger, Michael Lewis, Nicole Krauss, Mary Roach, Jonathan Spence, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sean Wilentz, Edward O. Wilson, and Fareed Zakaria. Based in New York City, it is the oldest and largest publishing house owned entirely by its employees.

W.W. Norton & Company has sent us 13 books in urology, immunology, psychiatry, clinical psychology, and neuroscience since 1994, but only recently did we start receiving them on a regular basis. Since the beginning of 2020, we have received seven titles. The just published Doody’s Core Titles 2020 lists four W.W. Norton & Company titles, with two selected as Essential Purchase titles, including Janeway’s Immunobiology, 9th edition, Murphy and Weaver (W.W. Norton & Company, 2017).
