Books by Rachel Weingarten

I’m the author of three award-winning books:

Ancient Prayer: Channeling Your Faith 365 Days of the Year (Fall River Press 1/16) was the first faith-based title commissioned by/printed by Barnes and Noble and initially launched as a Barnes and Noble exclusive. Ancient Prayer offers daily inspiration and wisdom from the past that ground us and help us put things into perspective, using biblical texts and prayers by early philosophers, poets, and spiritual leaders. These bite-sized lessons remind us to appreciate the truly important things in life and not lose sight of the higher power that guides us all.

During the frenzied flurry of modern daily life, it can sometimes be hard to remember what matters most. So take a deep breath and take a moment to remind yourself of the moments that matter most. With modern wisdom culled from ancient texts, this beautiful gift book adds a bit of inspiration to even the most frazzled day.

Celebrities with copies of Ancient Prayer include Matisyahu, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, Angela Bassett, cast members and crew of The Walking Dead, and many others.

Career and Corporate Cool (Wiley 2007 ) launched in partnership with global giant Nokia and one of’s picks for most interesting career book of 2007 and an Entrepreneur magazine pick for one of five “page-turners for women entrepreneurs.” Career and Corporate Cool can be found in many business and university libraries and is considered a must-have for those entering the workplace or looking to upgrade their personal brand and image. I lecture and lead workshops on defining your personal style and brand, corporate etiquette, and more.

Hello Gorgeous! Beauty Products in America ‘40s-‘60s , a NY Public Library pick for 2006, inspired a week-long retro beauty event at Henri Bendel including the 5th Avenue windows and main atrium decorated Hello Gorgeous! style. Hello Gorgeous! is also used as a text-book in cosmetic merchandising and marketing programs. I frequently lecture on the history of beauty, women’s spending power, and the cosmetic industry at universities and private corporations including cosmetic and fragrance corporations. I’m hoping for a reissue and updated version in late 2021. Stay tuned!
