Several readers have asked about Mises.org’s bestsellers by comparison with the same books on Amazon.com.
- The top seller on Mises.org is Making Economic Sense by Murray N. Rothbard, which we are selling for 1 cent (because the binding is overly brittle). The Amazon rank is 286,579.
- #2 is Man, Economy, and State, with Power and Market, which has an Amazon rank of 57,942
- #3 is Omnipotent Government by Mises, with an Amazon rank of 235,690 (the low rank is probably due to the long shipping time of 3 to 4 weeks, a factor that is controlled by the publisher. The Mises Institute has published the online but not the offline version.)
- #4 is Speaking of Liberty by Rockwell, with a wonderfully high Amazon rank of 1,690 (24 hour shipping)
- #5 is The Case Against the Fed by Murray Rothbard, which has an Amazon rank of 12,824.
