Freakonomics brought the sexy back to Economics, and the world is a better place for it. Now, theyâ€™ve published a revised edition of their famous book, updating their facts and figures to better match these modern times we live in (only a year and a half after the original release), as well as adding 90 pages of new material. With an economistâ€™s eye towards the world, they dissect everything from the drop in violent crime rates and the organizational structure of drug-dealing gangs to baby-naming patterns, making it both interesting and easily understandable. By drawing connections that most have not yet considered (linking the legalization of abortion to a reduced crime rater two decades later), Freakonomics solves many of the apparent mysteries of everyday life is a clear and concise manner. Definitely a must read if youâ€™ve got any sort of desire to understand the world around you in a slightly different light.
