This is a book that should be of interest to both Economists and non-economists. It has a Freakonomics pedigree, but reads more like a newspaper or a blog. The benefit of this format is that the authors are able to review a wide variety of economic studies. The downside is there isn't any real thesis. The book is basically just: "here are summaries of some interesting economic research".
