Freakonomics A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything By Levitt, Steven D. Book - 2005

Freakonomics is a fantastic read for someone looking for a casual and fun yet somewhat educational work of non-fiction. The way of thinking described in this book is something that most everyone should try, because inefficiency and unthinking convictions are two of the greatest enemies to modern society. Whether its sumo wrestlers or schoolteachers, crack or parenting, authors Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner make just about everything more interesting and digestible. The book includes six chapters, each with an overarching theme. This format allows the authors to run wild with their anecdotal storytelling, yet their ideas always come together for a satisfying conclusion at the end of the chapter. I particularly enjoyed chapters 1 and 6, but the quality is great across the board. All that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Freakonomics and would highly recommend it to just about anyone.
