“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.
