We get a lot of questions about who’s out there publishing business books, so we decided to make a list of traditional, trade business book imprints and houses who release non-specialized and non-academic business books. There are, of course, general non-fiction publishers who publish the occasional business title, academic publishers with academic titles on business subjects, and specialized publishers who only work in one topic area, such as project management or human resources. Here is our alphabetical and limited list (descriptions taken from publishers’ websites).
