NASHVILLE, TN – Hachette Nashville announced that it has sold more than 3 million books by author John C. Maxwell. The milestone was celebrated at a special event with Hachette employees last week.

“Three million copies is just one way to measure the profound impact that John Maxwell has had on a generation of leaders,” said Rolf Zettersten, Senior Vice President & Publisher at Hachette Nashville. “His books are such a rich resource for leaders at every level who aspire to grow and develop.”

Hachette Nashville first partnered with Maxwell in 2002 for the bestselling book Running with the Giants. The beginning of a longstanding and successful partnership, Maxwell’s Hachette titles now include How Successful People Lead, How Successful People Think, The 5 Levels of Leadership and The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.

In 2014, Hachette Nashville will publish three titles with Maxwell: How Successful People Grow: 15 Ways to Get Ahead in Life (Center Street, April 22); Good Leaders Ask Great Questions: Your Foundation for Successful Leadership (Center Street, October 7); and Learning from the Giants: Life and Leadership Lessons from the Bible (FaithWords, November 11).

John C. Maxwell is an international leadership expert, coach and author who has sold more than 21 million books. He is the founder of The John Maxwell Company and EQUIP, a non-profit organization that has trained nearly 6 million leaders in 177 countries worldwide. Each year he speaks to Fortune 500 companies, foreign government leaders, and diverse organizations such as the NFL, the United States Military Academy at West Point, and the United Nations.
