Once again, its time to peruse the data to see which books TBP readers bought last month. Amazon’s embed code lets me track every click from these links — how many people look at the page, how many books get seen, and/or collectively purchased.

Its anonymous — I don’t know who bought what — but there’s lots of data on the various books generated.

These were the most popular TBP books for September:

Dark Pools: High-Speed Traders, A.I. Bandits, and the Threat to the Global Financial System (Scott Patterson)

Memos from the Chairman (Alan C. Greenberg)

The Payoff: Why Wall Street Always Wins (Jeff Connaughton)

    Glad to see Charles Mackay’s book making an appearance. That being said, one can download it for free at Project Gutenberg as it is long our of copyright. Gutenberg now has almost everything in Kindle format as well.
