Commit Optimism Press

Optimism Press is focused on sharing the ideas that will help us advance the greater good, to build a world in which people feel inspired, safe and fulfilled in their professional and personal lives.

A new book imprint Simon co-created with longtime publisher, Portfolio, as a platform for voices in leadership and public service.


We will look to the business world, the nonprofit world, the military, politics, education, the clergy, or elsewhere to find authors who can both inspire us and offer us direction on how to build a more optimistic world.

These are the optimists & authors, and their ideas, who contribute to this vision.

Great leaders are optimists. This is not the same as being positive. Positive is finding light in the now; optimists see light always.
