really liked it
Read in January, 2005

Although Levitt admits his lack of a unifying theme between all the chapters, it's intriguing to read his ideas on random questions like, who is most likely to cheat when bagels are paid for on an honor system or is there an incentive for real estate agents to sell their own homes for more than they sell their clients' homes? Some answers seem obvious and some surprising. I enjoyed his ideas.
