Ebury is the home of non-fiction. We publish the books that bring readers and authors together around shared passions in life: from cookery to creativity, from sport to spirituality, and from the most compelling personal stories to the biggest new ideas.

At the heart of Ebury are our four Hubs – Lifestyle/BBC, Entertainment, Self and Smart – each an expert team of editors, publicists and marketers, working closely with our authors. Investing our boundless energy and collective creativity into every book, we craft the record-breaking, chart-topping, perennial bestsellers that will get you through.
