Question by joseph z: how can I find out which books are the most cited by other books on Amazon.com?
for example I have found that about 8000 books cite ‘The origin of species’ by Charles Darwin according to Amazon, and I am interested to know if any books on Amazon are cited by more than that and which books have nearest etc, basically I want to order the books on Amazon by the number of other books on Amazon that cite those books to find which books have been the most ‘influential’ in recent history.

The citations section is usually just below the ‘Inside This Book’ section of any Amazon book page, it is usually uniform in its layout etc, so perhaps I can interrogate it with a special query in the search? or would I have to use some kind of Web API like AWS?

any info or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers.
