Fascinating figures and stories. 3 peeves, though. 1st, Good school grades do not always correlate with happy healthy lives. 2nd, if you're going for classy you don't have to include crass language. 3, I think that Roe vs. Wade may not be as influential in that sector of culture as you think and the stats didn't bear repeating. It seemed in some instances that the book was a vehicle for this and other sections and the other ones (like cheating) were an afterthought. ( )

Studded with umpteen examples explained in too much detail. ( )

A great, fun romp through economics and social science. It is very accessible, but includes notes of you want to go deeper. It's a very quick read, and honestly perfect for a plane ride or other trip.

It's very akin in tone and style to their podcast, which is also very enjoyable.

If you're looking for hard data, this isn't it, but if you're looking for some fun thought and insight about things that may have crossed your mind here and there, it's worth picking up. ( )

interesting material..... not really a book... just this guys ideas and theories on why things are the way they are.... not really much of a deep read, more like a series of articles mushed together in a book... ( )

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.
