Storm King Press publishes books that work – clear, concise books that teach readers how to learn, or how to think about,
important subjects and issues.
Storm King Press was founded in 1979 in Cornwall, New York – a Hudson River town at the foot of Storm King Mountain. The
company’s purpose was to publish Herbert E. Meyer’s first book, The War Against Progress. The book was a success with the
public and – because of its pro-growth theme -- even found its way into Ronald Reagan’s 1980 presidential campaign. After
the election, Herb was invited to join the Reagan Administration as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence,
and later Vice Chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council. As a result, Herb and Jill moved to Washington DC and
the company was shut down.
Storm King Press was revived in 1986, when Herb left government service. Its purpose now was to publish a new handbook
that Herb and Jill had co-authored, How to Write. With the rapid success of this book, Storm King Press launched a series
of handbooks: How to Learn a Foreign Language, by Graham E. Fuller; How to Care for Your Parents, by Nora Jean Levin (no longer
available from Storm King Press); and How to Program, by Chris Crawford.
Herb and Jill moved to Friday Harbor, Washington, in 1991 and have continued to operate Storm King Press. The company’s
books are sold worldwide. In addition to individual sales, the books are used in schools, colleges and businesses. Storm King
Press books are available in stores, by mail order from Storm King, and now in e-book formats.
