What factors are considered in creating these lists? Mr. Ferris also introduces the reader to The Amazon Monthly 100. If you are an author or a budding writer, this one is well worth the read.  To read the article, please visit http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2012/08/17/amazon-monthly-100/

“Having had two bestsellers (and preparing to launch what I hope will be a third), I’m constantly asked about how bestseller lists work.  It can be a very complicated subject, but I’ll provide a summary of the major lists below, with the bonus of a brand-new list you’ve never seen: The Amazon Monthly 100.”
