Miramax Books was a publishing imprint started by Bob and Harvey Weinstein of Miramax Films and was known for the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. It published the memoirs of many major celebrities, including David Boies, Madeline Albright, Rudolph Giuliani, Tim Russert, and others. Like Miramax Films, it was owned by The Walt Disney Company.

When the Weinsteins broke from Disney in 2005, five years before Miramax Films went for sale by Disney, the book division was folded into Disney's publishing arm, Hyperion, and the Weinstein Brothers brought its CEO, Rob Weisbach, over to their new company, The Weinstein Company, where books are published under the Weinstein Books imprint.
