In 2007, Mark Penn released Microtrends, which was a best-seller on both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal lists. Penn will be writing a sequel to Microtrends for publication with Simon & Schuster in 2018.

Microtrends cemented Penn’s ability to explain changes in the country as a result of small, not large trends that were impacting our lives. 

The book was met with praise from many publications, from the Washington Post who called Penn “probably the most powerful man in Washington you’ve never heard of” to New York Magazine, which said Penn is “the guru of small things…Mark Penn is more than a high-powered Democratic pollster: his idea helped transform the Clinton presidency into a service provider for various niche voters”.

Mark Penn also contributes to several different publications. Most recently he has contributed op-eds to The Hill, where his monthly Harvard-Harris Poll results are documented and released. The Harvard-Harris Poll releases a monthly poll on issues important to the American people – from healthcare to the new Administration to the media.

He has also contributed to publications such as Fortune, the New York Times, POLITICO and the Washington Post.
