Not as good as Freakonomics A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything. Or maybe I'm just jaded after reading the original, and Malcolm Gladwell's books, and many others that popped up in the popular economics genre.

There are fewer jaw-dropping revelations about the world as we (thought we) know it. And there's a disproportionate use of pages relative to what actually interested me. Prostitution - 30 pages; terrorism - 40 pages; Global warming - 80 pages; Monkey Prostitution - only 1 page!
