Good point: This book turned out to be mostly about data mining.
Bad point: I was hoping to read a book about economy for dummies.
Good point: It was fun to read, with lots of silly factoids.
Bad point: the factoids were not all that interesting for people outside of the USA.
Good point: It gave me nice ideas for data mining projects.
Bad point: the cheese. It was everywhere.
Bad point: the ending of each chapter contained at least one paragraph singing praise of Mr. Levitt. Really. I don't care if he's child prodigy / genius / revolutionary. I'm interested in his work, not his person. It's not bloody Bertrand Russell. Let his brilliancy speak for itself.

Very interesting look at the world around us and the numbers that we THINK affect our world and its trends. ( )

The book was ok but their podcast is soooo much better. Having already listened to the podcast, I found the book to be a significant overlap of the same material. While it went into depth in a few more areas, I really didn't need that and preferred the presentation style used in the podcasts. ( )

If I were to write the action movie trailer for this book it would go: In a world where pundits constantly confuse correlation with cause and effect, one man refuses to oversimplify. Take that conventional wisdom! Plus I just noticed that the apple on the cover is an orange inside. ( )

Economists can seem a little arrogant at times. They have a set of techniques and habits of thought that they regard as more ''rigorous'' than those of other social scientists. When they are successful -- one thinks of Amartya Sen's important work on the causes of famines, or Gary Becker's theory of marriage and rational behavior -- the result gets called economics. It might appear presumptuous of Steven Levitt to see himself as an all-purpose intellectual detective, fit to take on whatever puzzle of human behavior grabs his fancy. But on the evidence of ''Freakonomics,'' the presumption is earned.
 
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerThe Economist (pay site) (May 12, 2005)
 
The book, unfortunately titled Freakonomics, is broken into six chapters, each posing a different social question. Levitt and Dubner answer them using empirical research and statistical analysis. And unlike academics who usually address these matters, they don't clutter the prose with a lot of caveats. They just show you the goods.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerTime, Amanda Ripley (Apr 24, 2005)
 
Freakonomics is about unconventional wisdom, using the raw data of economics in imaginative ways to ask clever and diverting questions. Levitt even redefines his definition. If, as he says, economics is essentially about incentives and how people realise them, then economics is a prospecting tool, not a laboratory microscope.
