7pagodas's review of Freakonomics

The Conventional Wisdom

first review
4out of 5

by 7pagodas on July 9, 2009

The conventional wisdom is often wrong. The author (co-author?) makes some interesting points. However, he spends a lot of time demonstrating how the professor arrived at his conclusions - a lot of time. A lot.
Still, I'd recommend the book and I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to read more about this man's theories. But I'd probably fall asleep while he explained why he thinks what he thinks.
Almost exactly like I did in Economics 101 many years ago.
