Freakonomics (Feb. 08)
I finally listened to Freakonomics by Stephen Levitt this month. This book has been on my “to be read” list since May of 2005. What a fascinating book! The author has an amazing ability to look at long established “facts” in a completely new way, overthrowing commonly accepted wisdom, and finding the real causes behind changes in our society. I highly recommend this to everyone. It is short, to the point, and - regardless of whether you agree with his conclusions or not - it will make you think.
