The 100 most commented history books on Reddit

The result, or at least the #1 book, might surprise you. It sure surprised me.

Since there's zero discussion of the methodology in the link provided, there's little meaningful conclusions to draw from this.  If you follow their link to the source, it still doesn't really tell how the data is collected, although it's obvious that r/atheism being a default subreddit is driving a lot of those selections.

Would also be more trustworthy data if it didn't have duplicates.  That's a signal that there's probably tons of books that are left OUT of the list.
