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 blockbuster hits are highly predictable, and they have created 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.
