800-CEO-READ Publishes Its 2013 Bestseller List

Each year, 800CEOREAD compiles a bestseller list each month to recognize the books they’re shipping out to businesspeople, business schools, and entrepreneurs to help spread ideas, solve problems, promote change, and inspire leadership. They’ve now compiled and collated the numbers for the entire year, giving weight to both total sales numbers and how long each book stayed on the list (and at what number) and are now happy to announce 800-CEO-READ’s bestsellers of 2013.
