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 [2] (Frank Partnoy)

The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood [3] (James Gleick)

Bailout Nation, with New Post-Crisis Update: How Greed and Easy Money Corrupted Wall Street and Shook the World Economy [4] (Barry Ritholtz)

How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life [5] (Thomas Gilovich)

Thinking, Fast and Slow [6] (Daniel Kahneman)

Capitalism and Freedom: Fortieth Anniversary Edition [7] (Milton Friedman)

The Art of Contrary Thinking [8] (Humphrey B. Neill)

The Myth of the Rational Market: A History of Risk, Reward, and Delusion on Wall Street [9] (Justin Fox)

Underwater Dogs [10] (Seth Casteel)
