What books Abnormal Returns readers purchased in December 2017

Another month, another bestseller list dominated by reduced-price Kindle books. Our readers are apparently a value-sensitive bunch and picked up a slew of copies of my favorite book on meditation: 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story by Dan Harris.

For more book ideas you can check out our latest post compiling our many book links as well as last month’s best-sellers list. We present sales two ways: the first is by unit sales and the second 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 December 2017:
