The collective encyclopedia claims to have relied on reliable and independent sources to include all the copies published so far in all languages, although be careful, because the list does not include comics, textbooks, books of philosophical or religious content (for that does not appear in the Bible, which, with its 5,000 million copies, would take first place), or ideological or political volumes – in which case, Mao Zedong’s Red Book would be included, which is also supposed to be very sold, although there is no official data-.

Also, there are not many public domain contents on this list, such as The Count of Montecristo, due to the difficulty of compiling the figures of the multiple editions that have been carried out by different publishers.
