Nautilus Book Awards Winner in "Conscious Business & Leadership" CategoryDecember 9, 2009, Del Mar, CA – Integrity Revolution, LLC, has announced that its Executive Director, Dr. David Gruder, won his eighth book award. This one is a 2009 Nautilus Book Award for Conscious Business & Leadership, for his latest book, The New IQ: How Integrity Intelligence Serves You, Your Relationships and Our World, a master plan for creating sustainable happiness, business success and solutions to today’s challenges without sacrificing integrity, people or social responsibility.

By winning a Nautilus Silver Award, Dr. Gruder joins the ranks of fellow Nautilus Award Winners Deepak Chopra, MD, Barbara Kingsolver, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jean Houston, PhD, Eckhart Tolle, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. “I’m delighted to be in their company and truly awed that The New IQ has been embraced not only by the business community and leaders, but across the entire political and faith spectrums,” says Dr. Gruder, who in addition to being a clinical and organizational psychologist is also an Ordained Interfaith Spiritual Director.

Dr. Gruder received his initial two awards in the late 1990s, including a Colliers Mental Health Book of the Year award, for his first print book (now out of print), "Sensible Self-Help: The First Road Map for the Healing Journey."

The other awards The New IQ has received to date are in: “Current Events in Politics & Society,” “Social Change,” “Health & Wellness,” “Self-Help,” and “Metapsychology.” According to book business veteran and publisher Dawson Church, “it is highly unusual for a book to receive awards in this wide a range of categories. The fact that The New IQ has accomplished this speaks to the profound and broad-based way this book addresses the key challenges of our time. The New IQ is truly the most important book you’ve never heard of.”

The Nautilus Awards were established to find and reward distinguished literary contributions to spiritual growth, conscious living, high-level wellness, green values, responsible leadership and positive social change as well as to the worlds of art, creativity and inspirational reading for children, teens and young adults.

Nautilus Book Awards Founder & Director Marilyn McGuire explains that “The Nautilus Awards promotes spiritual growth, conscious living and positive social change. We have an extensive evaluation process with three teams of highly qualified judges who use a list of carefully prepared parameters in keeping with our intent to select books of the highest caliber.”
