News & Opinion: 800-CEO-READ's Top 25 for 2004

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 10:15 PM – Filed under: The Company

Here is 800-CEO-READ's Top 25 of 2004. This list is based on sales. What we do is tabulate sales every month and at the end of the year we look at what books showed up on our lists the most. The more times a book made the monthly list, the more credit it gets. The bulks sales that 800-CEO-READ does can really skew the results if we just look at total sales. We think books with staying power deserve more credit.
