Demonstrating the breadth of the category, bestselling mind-body-spirit books of 2019 (through July 13) include self-help titles such as Oprah Winfrey’s The Path Made Clear (#2); Michael Pollan’s popular scientific and historical analysis of psychedelic drugs, How to Change Your Mind (#7 in trade paper, #9 in physical audio); and Queen Afua’s Sacred Woman (#14), which explores sacred sexuality as well as Afrocentric spirituality.

The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz’s guide to finding personal freedom using practices based on ancient Toltec wisdom, tops the 2019 bestsellers list 22 years after it was originally published, while Eckhart Tolle takes two spots with his popular titles The Power of Now (#3) and A New Earth (#4). Rounding out the top five is The Secret, Rhonda Byrne’s treatise on the power of positive thinking.

Anne Lamott, the bestselling author of Bird by Bird and Help, Thanks, Wow, comes in at #17 with her recent release, Almost Everything, which PW called a “comforting book of reflections inspired by the current social and political climate” in its review. Two books on witchcraft by Arin Murphy-Hiscock also made the top 25, while guidebooks to tarot decks occupy #11 and #16 on the list.
