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 August:

Bailout Nation (Barry Ritholtz)
Choose Yourself! (James Altucher)
The Success Equation (Michael J. Mauboussin)
Coaching Questions: A Coach’s Guide to Powerful Asking Skills (Tony Stoltzfus)
Lords of Finance (Liaquat Ahamed)
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (Edwin Lefèvre)
The Myth of the Rational Market (Justin Fox)
Backstage Wall Street (Josh Brown)
Manias, Panics and Crashes (Charles P. Kindleberger)
Griftopia (Matt Taibbi)
The Big Short (Michael Lewis)
Thinking, Fast and Slow (Daniel Kahneman)
New Ideas from Dead Economists (Todd G. Buchholz)
Poor Charlie’s Almanack (Charles T. Munger)
When Genius Failed (Roger Lowenstein)

    I’ve read five of those books.
    Most of them once.
    But “Reminiscences” I’ve read at least a dozen times and listened to the audio more than that.
    It IS the best of the bunch for understanding trading and speculating.

    Any feedback on David Stockman’s 700 page book “The Great Deformation”? I’m thru the 3rd chapter. Lots of invective and naming names so far.

      I’ve listened to two interviews with Stockman and he’s blowing A LOT OF smoke. Blames the FED for almost everything that went wrong.
