Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything gets 4 Stars for out of the box thinking and puncturing liberal and conservative "conventional wisdom". Frankly I was just totally bummed out to find that one of my all-time, favorite sports--sumo wrestling--has fallen victim to cheating. It will be hard to recover from that shock. But I was cheered to find out that my role as a parent may not have had all that much influence on how my kids turned out. Thank g0d they turned out ok. A quick, enjoyable romp through economic questions you probably never studied in school. Fun.
