I just looked at the UK amazon physics bestseller list and Smolin "The Trouble with Physics...and What Comes Next" was number one. that is maybe not so surprising. It was the number one physics bestseller in the US for a couple of months or so in fall 2006 when it came out, and the UK edition just came out last month. But here is something unexpected: Smolin's book is currently the #23 UK amazon bestseller in ALL BOOKS. Here's the UK physics list http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/bestsellers/books/278409/ref=pd_ts_b_nav/026-8303087-5718006 Here's the page for the book, that currently says the salesrank is #23 (might be different an hour from now.) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trouble-Phy...pd_ts_b_1/026-3303388-4063638?ie=UTF8&s=books Here's the UK all books list http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/bestsellers/books/ref=pd_ts_b_ldr/026-3303388-4063638 It is currently topped by Harry Potter books and some detective novels, obviously real tough competition for a physics book, but nevertheless Smolin is hanging in there at #23 place. Get a look now, can't expect something like this to last!
