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 February:

How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life [2] (Thomas Gilovich)

The Fortune Sellers: The Big Business of Buying and Selling Predictions [3] (The Fortune Sellers: The Big Business of Buying and Selling Predictions)

Wait: The Art and Science of Delay [4] (Humphrey B. Neill)

Pound Foolish: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry [5] (Helaine Olen)

The Dow Jones averages, 1885-1980 [6] (Phyllis S. Pierce)

The Art of Contrary Thinking [6] (Humphrey B. Neill)

Thinking, Fast and Slow [5] (Daniel Kahneman)

Bailout Nation [7] (Barry Ritholtz)

The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood [8] (James Gleick)

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