I recently finished reading Freakonomics, and I must admit I was slightly disappointed. From reading the blurb, I thought it was going to be pretty interesting, helping me to realize things I would have never thought before.
The book provided me with some nice little anecdotes, but to be perfectly honest, I wasn’t impressed. Some of the conclusions established were rather easy, although reading the stories behind them is what made it entertaining. The book has no use with regards to increasing knowledge in economics, but like I said, could provide for some interesting stories to tell people at parties. My personal favorite topic discussed was the relationship between abortion and crime.
