This is the latest book from the authors of Freakonomics and Think Like a Freak (which was a recent FP deal at the same price). This book celebrates the 10-year anniversary of Freakonomics and, among other things, revisits some of the previously discussed topics.

I really like the freak podcast. I found this book to be boring though.

"Normal" price would have been zero Smilie Like the authors said, they "bottle something that was freely available [note: on their blog] and charge you money for it".

I love Freakonomics series and definitely enjoy reading tidbits that apply the same approach to try to explain day-to-day observation. Though I do wish there are more interesting topics. There are a few chapters that are disproportionately long comparing to the rest. Overall fun to read but I would recommend starting with the original Freakonomics.
