There was an interesting post over at Reddit the other day that explained how "bestsellers" aren't literally bestsellers at all.
What happens is that the publisher or the retailer believe that a certain book will be a "bestseller", so they bump it up to the "bestsellers" list. That's why pretty much every major celebrity endorsed book reaches the "bestseller" list. In this case, Itunes promptly bumped the book to the top.
TL;DR: Bestsellers become bestsellers because they say it is a bestseller.
