News & Opinion: 2006 Bestsellers (a little late)

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 7:33 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Some folks started asking us for the 2006 bestsellers. Some how we forgot to do this right after the New Year, and I know many of you are dying to hear the results.

One note on methodology: We award points to a book's position on our monthly list, as well as the number of months it appears on our lists.

Without further ado...
