About Us

When we launched The Experiment in early 2009, we explained our name with this thought: Because every book is a test of new ideas.

Since then, we’ve been excited to see how the new ideas in our books have caught on. Most notably, Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health became our first #1 New York Times bestseller! Its sequel, Forks Over Knives—The Cookbook, is also a New York Times bestseller, and has more than 580,000 copies in print. Both tie-ins to the 2011 feature documentary also called Forks Over Knives, these two books are helping to inspire and guide hundreds of thousands of people as they seek out the many benefits of eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet. Forks Over Knives has even been the subject of a question on the television show Jeopardy!

Many other books we’ve published have also garnered major national attention and bestseller status:

We look for books with one or more of the following qualities: They present highly proprietary information or a singular perspective. They are exceptionally useful, although sometimes in nonstandard ways. They address an urgent need on the part of readers—with regard to health, well-being, or simple curiosity. And they are competently written and distinctively voiced.

We’ve published nearly two hundred books since the fall of 2009, when our first books began to make their way out into the world, and one hundred of those books have been reprinted at least once.

We hope that you will want to read, sell, buy, review, feature, blog about, cook from, give as a gift, license, translate, or otherwise enjoy our books!
