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 January:

Wait: The Art and Science of Delay (Frank Partnoy)

The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood (James Gleick)

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

How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life (Thomas Gilovich)

Thinking, Fast and Slow (Daniel Kahneman)

Capitalism and Freedom: Fortieth Anniversary Edition (Milton Friedman)

The Art of Contrary Thinking (Humphrey B. Neill)

The Myth of the Rational Market: A History of Risk, Reward, and Delusion on Wall Street (Justin Fox)

Underwater Dogs (Seth Casteel)

Kindle and eBooks after the jump

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.

    Find and feature books that show how raising taxes on Carbon will decrease its use, make our air cleaner, and reduce the deficit.

    BR,
    Will Bailout Nation come out as an audio book. I like to listen to audio books as I travel.

    Thanks
