it was amazing
bookshelves: business, nonfiction

I'm sure you've heard all about this book and I don't need to tell you anything about it, right? I'm not going to rehash the correlation Levitt & Dubner found between the legalization of abortion and a drop in crime rates 20 years later... or how real estate agents are less motivated to help you sell your house for the best price than you think... or how the name your parents choose for you may be closely associated with how educated they are. If any of that sounds interesting, definitely read the book. It's very readable and not at all like an economics textbook.
