The amazing sales run on Friedrich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom continues — it’s currently #247 among all books at Amazon.
Why the remarkable sales spike? Well, in the midst of the current turmoil all sorts of people are talking about it and recommending it, e.g. Steve Forbes in his magazine, Glenn Reynolds on Instapundit, the chairman of Sears / Kmart in his letter to stockholders, Rush Limbaugh on his radio show, the founder of Motley Fool in his newsletter, the editors of a major California newspaper on their editorial page, and Mark Levin in his 1# NY Times bestseller. A book written for its own times seems to have become a book for all times.
