 About Our  
Company: 
The Experiment, LLC
http://theexperimentpublishing.com/

We are an independent book publisher, launched in 2009, focused on a wide range of nonfiction—much of it practical—including food (and how to grow, cook, and enjoy it), health and fitness, psychology and personal development, parenting, relationships, sexuality, science, and nature. We’re called The Experiment because every book is a test of new ideas—and because we’re motivated by the curiosity and wonder of the unknown that drive every scientific experiment. Our books enlighten, empower, and entertain readers with new or freshly presented ideas, stories, and practices. Our scale is intimate, our books far-reaching.
