Publishing Industry Rankings

Information regarding the publishing industry is extremely hard to obtain. For example, how does the New York Times compile its bestseller list? Or the Wall Street Journal. Or for that matter, the Christian Book Association. It looks like Michael Hyatt at Thomas Nelson has decided to undertake the job of breaking down some of those walls. He has a post on his blog that provides rankings of the Top Ten Publishers in America. If you read the post you will see that Hyatt includes all major retail channels. That's because those avenues are the only ones you can really measure. As he points out, if other channels could be accurately counted, then it would impact the rankings.
