In the History category you have the book "Margin of Safety: The Story of Poliomyelitis Vaccine" in 5th place. In 2004 you also had a "Margin of Safety" and it was in the Popular Science and Technology category. The full title of the 2004 book is: Margin of Safety: Risk-Averse Value Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor

If there are searches for "Margin of Safety" on Bookfinder the searchers are more likely looking for the investment book not the vaccine book. The business book is in high demand. Business Week had an entire article on the book "Margin of Safety: Risk-Averse Value Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor". (Business Week article is titled: The $700 Used Book: Why all the buzz about Seth Klarman's out-of-print investing classic?)

If a search was for "Margin of Safety: The Story of Poliomyelitis Vaccine" then clearly they want the vaccine book. But if a search is for "Margin of Safety" odds are that the person is looking for the investing book. People looking for the investing book have lots of incentive to use Bookfinder. "Margin of Safety" (ISBN:0887305105) on Amazon consistently sells for over $1000.

That seems pretty likely, though per our research, both titles are being searched for. In the interim, we've removed the book pending further investigation.

I received 1 st loans when I was 25 and this aided my business a lot. But, I require the consolidation loans also.
