The most frequently cited books on Human Relations from Ask.MetaFilter
I counted every amazon link on every single question and answer page (5,427 pages) from the human relations category of Ask.MetaFilter. This spans more than five years worth of advice. The results are pretty interesting. I also did this for the work & money category.

This is a great idea. Just think how much more democratic the internet has made the process of finding good self-help books. 20 years ago, the best you could do would be to browse the self-help section or maybe read a few professional reviews. Now we get to see which books have actually been useful enough to people that they'll suggest them to others to deal with their problems.

Awesome! I'd love to see the aggregate totals for fiction and non-fiction recommendations, which are also numerous.
