Ten Speed Press

Ten Speed Press is a publishing house that was founded in Berkeley, California in 1970. Philip Wood, founder and publisher, began his career with Barnes & Noble in 1962 and in 1965 at Penguin books. He was in charge of Penguin Books in Baltimore and New York in 1969 before founding Ten Speed Press.

Ten Speed started with "Anybody’s Bike Book" which is still in print and has sold nearly a million copies. Its all-time best-seller is "What Color Is Your Parachute? A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers" by Richard N. Bolles. The book, first published in 1972, and now revised annually, has sold over nine million copies, and exists in 14 languages. In addition to these two books, Ten Speed has published a number of other famous titles: "Moosewood Cookbook," "White Trash Cooking," "Why Paint Cats," "Bears' Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning", and "Flattened Fauna." Ten Speed Press currently publishes 150 books a year under all of its imprints.
