"This book is far, far better than the cover art and plot description here on Goodreads would lead you to believe. I was nearly too embarrassed to add it. My copy is hardback and smells like an attic. Delightful. Full review to come." May 22, 2014 10:14PM

Easy-to-read, fun, slightly cynical pop-economics. Christians may be offended by their theory that legalized abortion solved the crime problem of the 90's. However, while they might "prove" economically that a pregnant woman will instinctively make t...more
