Freakonomics
 from Bluffton, SC,  Jan 15, 2008

Freakonomics is a thought provoking book that causes you to look at the world from a different point of view. It is not the typical economics book1 The author poses a question and then proceeds to answer it. The questions, however, are not everyday economics questions but rather questions such as "What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common" or "Where have all the criminals gone". Fascinating stuff to say the least!

an OKAY book
 from Brewster, NY,  Feb 10, 2007

NY Times Bestseller List? I'm sorry, but I just don't see its appeal. Aside from a few good points made with TOO MANY words -- over explaining the authors' theories, if you will -- I found this book rather boring. It was unnecessarily repetitive in some parts and seemed to jump from one topic to another with little or no transition. Like I said, they raise some good points, and readers will likely agree, as I do, that some of them make a lot of sense. For example, a real estate agent will steer you away from holding out for more money when selling your home. This is because the extra amount (which puts thousands more in your pocket) only puts a few hundred more in his. Showing how these numbers work can be very interesting; but I only needed a page or two to "get it." On the plus side, punctuation and sentence structure was very good -- better than some books I have read lately!

Thought provoking
 from Austin, TX,  Jan 23, 2007

This is a heck of a read. Not politically correct but not offensive either. Really thought provoking. It addresses a lot of what we just accept as part of life -- or more importantly the favorable trends that politicians take credit for.
