Book Review of “Freakonomics” By Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

Freakonomics

By Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

Now this is a pleasant surprise for people who don’t really care much about economics leave alone non-fiction. The authors have showered a lot of examples to make it simpler and easier tounderstand and analyze a range of questions/topics. It is hard to put the book down once you start reading. It is pretty refreshing, engaging, appealing, inspiring and revealing (answers).

It opens up your mind to changes in the behavioral pattern of people around you; it teaches you to question (if not challenge) conventional wisdom; it beckons you to draw your conclusions. It coaxes and inspires you to find the real truth rather than accepting “data” presented on a platter.
