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 December:

Exploring Wine: Completely Revised [2] 3rd Ed (Steven Kolpan & Brian H. Smith)

Underwater Dogs [3] (Seth Casteel)

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder [4] (Nassim Nicholas Taleb)
