Book Review: Freakonomincs
This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“The gulf between the information we publicly proclaim and the information we know to be true is often vast.”
The kind of book I love: One that questions “conventional wisdom” and knocks down the majority-accepted explanations for many of life’s occurrences. From teachers cheating on standardized tests to sumo wrestlers to why swimming pools are more of a hazard than guns, Freakonomics challenges your preconceived notions.
