really liked it

Sunstein is one of the most prominent advocates of cost-benefit analysis in public policy and law. In this book, he clearly lays out his argument for why using cost-benefit analysis is a good idea. Importantly, he admits and discusses the weaknesses as well. So, while the book obviously has a pro Cost-benefit slant, it is by no means misleadingly biased. Sunstein is a good writer, and has very persuasive arguments. A must read for anybody interested in policy or policy analysis.
