really liked it

If moralists look at the world the way it should work, then economists look at the world the way it actually does work. That is the simple premise of this page turning book.

If you love reading about studies, examining numbers, and analyzing research - then this book is for you.

If you love reading about why drug dealers live with their moms, why legalizing abortion has lowered our crime rates, or learning why playing your kids Mozart really does not matter - then this book is for you.

Freakonomics is a fun book that teaches you something. A little learning never hurt anyone. Well, unless it was outlawed in some Communist state and the penalty was execution by rifle.
