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 November:

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder [2] (Nassim Nicholas Taleb)

Bailout Nation, with New Post-Crisis Update: How Greed and Easy Money Corrupted Wall Street and Shook the World Economy [3] (Barry Ritholtz)

Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself [4] (Sheila Bair)

Dark Pools: High-Speed Traders, A.I. Bandits, and the Threat to the Global Financial System [5] (Scott Patterson)

Exploring Wine: Completely Revised 3rd Edition [6] (Steven Kolpan)

Go the F**k to Sleep [7] (Adam Mansbach)
