Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - Stephen J. Dubner, Steven D. Levitt This book hides itself well as more of a sociology-type book than economics book. I figured it must be interesting if everyone and their dog had read it, and it was. I've actually used information from this book in conversation on at least 2 occasions since reading this. I don't think I'll ever think of gangs, standardized tests, or swimming pools in the backyard of a toddler's home the same way again. I do so enjoy statistics and sociology, so this was right up my alley. I was a little sad, though, that the audiobook crapped out on me just when I was getting to the most interesting part. It just stopped and wouldn't go any further despite re-downloading it. Oh well. I was just 30 minutes or so from the end, so I probably didn't miss too much.
