A monthly post looking at what books Abnormal Returns readers purchased at Amazon in the prior month has become very popular with our readers. There was a lot of turnover this month due in large part to the book recommendations post from our panel of bloggers. I should note that hardcover copies of the Abnormal Returns book are on deep discount over at Amazon, so if you don’t have a copy yet now is your chance. Below are the books (combined print and Kindle) that our readers purchased during June 2013:
