The MANN, IVANOV & FERBER publishing house was founded in October 2004 by three successful managers with professional experience of both Russian and international companies. To date, it is the only Russian publishing house whose founders are themselves authors of business books.
Igor Mann is the author of the bestseller “100% Marketing” and co-author of “100% PR” and “Marketing Machine”.
Michael Ivanov and Michael Ferber are joint authors of the “Manual of Marketing Consulting Services”, and also translated and co-published the well-known titles “The McKinsey Way”, “Managing the Professional Service Firm”, “True Professionalism”, and “The Trusted Advisor”.

I have worked with Michael Ivanov in the publishing of my book, Reengineering the Corporation, in Russia. The volume was published with quality, and I have always experienced Michael and his firm to be of high professional standards. Michael always responded to my requests and executed well.

I enjoy working with MANN, IVANOV & FERBER . First and foremost, their advantage is a tailored approach to authors, editing, design and most importantly, marketing. The publishing house thinks out of the box, coming up with new marketing moves for every book. After publishing three books (including two business bestsellers) with various publishers, I would heartily recommend MANN, IVANOV & FERBER!

When I told people my book would be released by MANN, IVANOV & FERBER, I was immediately congratulated on having made the right publishing choice.
When I received the white volume on my birthday from the printing office, I was in seventh heaven.
When my partners see my picture on book covers in stores, negotiations get easier and more pleasant.
I’m grateful to the whole publishing house team for their impeccable work, from editing to merchandising, and my advice to everyone is to read the maximally useful books published by MANN, IVANOV & FERBER.
Alexander Shumovich, author of “Great Events. The Theory and Practice of Event Management ”
MANN, IVANOV & FERBER is turning into a unique phenomenon, a kind of publishing guru. Every book becomes a landmark, widely discussed and quoted in the business world. Keeping up to date with its latest releases is growing into a trend. Every new book is eagerly anticipated and added to the “white shelf” in people’s personal libraries. It is a great honor for me to be an author associated with this innovative publishing house.
MANN, IVANOV & FERBER is one of the most exciting and dynamic business literature publishers in Russia. The top priority in its well-thought-out publishing policy is to determine the target group accurately rather than release as many books as possible. That is why, in spite of its relatively modest line, MANN, IVANOV & FERBER is among the leaders in the Business Literature segment that numbers over 2,700 books at our bookstore.

Boffo.ru, a leading specialty online bookshop
Being narrowly focused on business literature bestsellers, we are very selective about which books to sell. However, we can’t imagine our shop without the books of MANN, IVANOV & FERBER, which are a fixture on our top-selling list. We trust these publishers’ choice so much that we are confident to launch all of their new books without hesitation.
We get massive positive feedback from our customers. And of course, we read MANN, IVANOV & FERBER books ourselves.

Moscow, June 19, 2007 — we signed an agreement with Stockholm School of Economics in Russia (SSE). Since the 1st of July authors’ rights on publishing books using the brand SSE as well as the rights to sell the SSE books relegated to the publishers Mann, Ivanov and Ferber. As a result our book portfolio doubled and now includes such titles as “Good to great”, “Funky business”, “Essentials by Tom Peter” and many others.
We will continue this series with the best titles. We are planning to publish 6-8 books per year.
