What books Abnormal Returns readers purchased in February 2017

This post originally appeared at Abnormal Returns on March 1, 2017. You can stay up-to-date with all of our posts via our daily e-mail newsletter.

February was dominated by a handful of low-priced Kindle books including How Will You Measure Your Life? by Clayton Christensen and Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind by Yuval Noah Harari. This generated a ton of turnover in our monthly bestseller list.

We also posted two book Q&As in February talking about institutional asset management and stock momentum with some familiar names: Ben Carlson author of Organizational Alpha: How to Add Value in Institutional Asset Management and Wes Gray co-author of Quantitative Momentum: A Practitioner’s Guide to Building a Momentum-Based Stock Selection System.

For more book ideas you can check out our latest post compiling our many book links as well as last month’s best-selling list. We present sales two ways: the first is by unit sales and the second way is by revenue which can be notably different. Here are the books (combined print, Kindle* and Audible.com) that Abnormal Returns readers purchased at Amazon during February 2017:
