Each month, we look at the books purchased by readers of TBP.
This is hardly an objective or fair list — thy tend to include items I have mentioned (and can therefore track at Amazon). Additionally, this list itself has become somewhat incestuous, as appearance here leads to more sales, which leads to next month’s appearance here. Its totally anonymous — I don’t know who bought what — but there’s lots of data on the various books generated.
One Caveat: Josh crushed all comers in March, but that also reflects February preorders that shipped last month. (That’s why he is number 1 with a bullet!).
In order, these were the most popular TBP books for March (ties are ordered by author last name):
The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood (James Gleick)
When to Sell: Inside Strategies for Stock-Market Profits (Justin Mamis)
Thinking, Fast and Slow (Daniel Kahneman)

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
