So the real question is... will this book gain as much traction as it had around when it was published

@MrLuke255 The question is: will the blue line on the graph go above the 2014 peak (the point marked in the red circle) before 2028.

predicts YES

@Metastable Technically it can't go above, because then it won't have a value of 100 πŸ˜…

@MrLuke255 The graph is normalized for the new highest value - the new highest point assumes value of 100, therefore the 2014 peak will have lower value if book becomes more popular than at its peak in 2014.
