There are only three programming books on their Top 100 list. The other 
two are Modern C++ Design (#12) and C++ Coding Standards (#28).

This all sounds great, but it must be because my homepage links to 
bestbookbuys.com. :o)

preorder?

I have a feeling that bestwebbuys counts a "purchase" when you click on the referring "BUY" link to e.g. amazon, even if you don't buy the book at that site. I just "bought" one recently :) -Steve

In that case it's counting interest in books, not sales. That's a different but also interesting metric. -- ... <IXOYE><
