Bruce Lansky is the best-selling author of baby name books in the world. His first name book, The Best Baby Name Book in the Whole Wide World, was written in 1978. It became the best-selling name book within a few months of publication. Why? Because it had more names, more helpful information, more humor, more gift appeal, and more of what people wanted than any other book in the category. Lansky now has six name books on the market with sales of more than 11 million copies. In addition to writing and updating these books, he also regularly writes articles about baby-naming, unusual names in the news, celebrity baby names, and the latest naming trends. He has appeared on thousands of TV and radio shows, sharing his ideas and enthusiasm for picking a name that will be a plus for a child throughout his or her life.
Lansky has also written popular children’s poetry and children’s fiction books.
