Jeremy P. Tarcher Inc. is a book publisher and imprint of Penguin Group (USA) focused primarily on mind, body and spiritualism titles. Founded by Jeremy P. Tarcher (1932–2015) in 1973 in Los Angeles, California, the company began by focussing on health, psychology, and philosophy, with a strong emphasis on the Human Potential Movement, though over the years the company has expanded to include serious nonfiction books of all types. Putnam purchased the company in 1991, and the offices were moved to New York. Tarcher remained head of the company until early 1996, and Joel Fotinos was named Publisher later that year.[1]

Tarcher publishes some fifty titles annually,[2] covering a broad spectrum of topics in the areas of wellness, self-improvement, spirituality, esoterica, occultism, creativity, social consciousness, prosperity and abundance, and more. Recent bestsellers include 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, Ultramarathon Man, The Dumbest Generation, The Wonder of Boys, Energy Medicine, The Power of Kindness, and Think & Grow Rich.[3][4]

In the field of success literature Tarcher publishes authors such as Napoleon Hill, Wallace D. Wattles, Dale Carnegie and James Allen. Among the imprint's authors in the field of mind, body and spiritualism are: Julia Cameron, David Lynch, Donna Eden, Betty Edwards, Piero Ferrucci, Daniel Pinchbeck, and Jacob Needleman.
