News & Opinion: Bookscan's Best Selling Books of 2005

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:41 PM – Filed under: Leadership & Strategy, Marketing & Sales

Neilsen Bookscan released their list of the 200 best selling books of 2005. Bookscan takes data from about 4500 retailers around the country. When we talk with publishers, they are watching closely what happens there.

I pulled the business books from their list (you'll see my definition is a little loose):

6. World Is Flat by Thomas Friedman
13. Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
15. Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner
42. Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
55. Winning by Jack Welch
59. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
67. Good To Great by Jim Collins
86. On Bullshit by Harry Frankfurt
128. The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, and Broke by Suzy Orman
141. Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson
167. Now, Discover Your Strengths by Marcus Buckingham
173. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by Harv Eker
183. Jim Cramer's Real Money by Jim Cramer
191. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

I also love that you will find Oh, The Places You Will Go! at #107 and Green Eggs and Ham at #156.
