What if an algorithm could predict which manuscripts would become mega-bestsellers?
Girl on the Train. Fifty Shades. The Goldfinch. Why do some books capture the whole world's attention? What secret DNA do they share? In The Bestseller Code, Archer and Jockers boldly claim that not only can mega-hits be explained and identified - but they've built the algorithm to prove it. Using cutting-edge text mining techniques, they have developed a model that analyses theme, plot, style and character to explain why some books resonate more than others with readers. Provocative, entertaining, and ground-breaking, The Bestseller Code explores the hidden patterns at work in the biggest hits and, more importantly, the real reasons we love to read.

If you're someone who dreams of penning a bestseller, read this book
Non-formulaic, eye-opening, deeply-researched - and really worth your time
[Archer's and Jockers'] enthusiasm and passion for literature shines through ... Thought-provoking and interesting
Archer is not some Silicon Valley whizz-kid looking to reduce the novel to 0s and 1s, nor is she a pretentious academic coming over the hills to sling around jargon about middlebrow novels. . . [She] is smart, savvy and full of ideas
[The] claims are eye-grabbing . . . [and] also highly plausible
Reveals the diverse directions in which popular fiction may be taken . . . The bestseller-ometer may find its most noble application as a democratizing force
When a story captures the imagination of millions, that's magic. Can you qualify magic? Archer and Jockers just may have done so
The Bestseller Code is an intriguing read and its analysis of what makes a plot tick and how readers are grabbed is compelling
Interesting ... This book is full of fascinating facts
This interesting little tome shares some of the Bookputer's insights with us, just in case we want to become author-millionaires too. And who doesn't? . . . Fascinating
Archer and Jockers are 'literature-friendly' and want good books to succeed
A delightful book to read. I would recommend it as both an entertaining and educational read for anybody interested in the business of books
Aspiring novelists who thumb through this volume will find plenty to think about . . . [T]his book actually represents an opportunity for literary scholars
A laboratory is a more compelling setting than a church
The Bestseller Code excited me, scared me, and generally blew my mind. Archer and Jockers have built a reading robot that can teach readers, writers, and publishers a great deal about how popular fiction works. This is a pioneering work in a new science of storytelling
Jodie Archer and Matthew Jockers take an astonishing insight into the DNA of bestsellers and turn it into a gripping page-turner about how we read. Truly remarkable!
