Product Description


"A delightful read that shows how being a parent changed one economist, and how being an economist provided insight on being a parent. Now if only I could get my two-year-old to eat her peas." Susan Athey, Harvard University, winner of 2007 John Bates Clark Medal

"Dr. Spock meets Freakonomics. Parenting will never be the same. Forget about inflation and unemployment. Here Gans uses economics and game theory to tackle really important topics, such as toilet training and fussy eaters. Parentonomics lays bare what most sleep-deprived parents only dream about. Gans may not help you become a better parent, but he will help you to stay one step ahead of your kids." Barry Nalebuff , Milton Steinbach Professor at Yale School of Management, coauthor of Co-Opetition

Pretty obnoxious for a cookbook. Oct. 2 2011
By Y. Barysheva - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book has a few to a lot of good recipes, depending on whether you generally cook with foie gras and truffle oil or not. (I just noticed on the inside cover, the recipes are described as "unpretentious." Since when is foie gras-stuffed quail unpretentious?)
However, the tone of this book is extremely obnoxious. I've lived in Brooklyn since I was 5 (before which I immigrated from Ukraine, so I am completely legit, I promise - a real immigrant Brooklyner), and it irks me that this book spends so much time talking about how diverse the population (and thus, the food) is, while their map of Brooklyn (hidden cleverly inside the jacket) is only of the north-west neighborhoods - Red Hook, Fort Greene, etc.
Also, the introduction begins with "We have to admit to feeling a bit smug, living and eating in Brooklyn..." and goes on to describe Brooklyn as being riddled with CSAs and roof-top farms, overflowing with local, organic food and microbreweries. Seriously? Maybe if I was living in a $3000-a-month Carroll Gardens apartment, I would have a roof-top farm. This book is the epitome of the back-patting smugness transplants to Brooklyn exude when they spend $6 a bunch on organic kale grown on someone's roof.
I'm not knocking local or organic food (I am definitely pro). However, the author of this book hasn't the slightest clue what the real Brooklyn is all about, and instead smugly encourages the very (lack of) culture destroying traditional Brooklyn. Am I bitter? Maybe. Is this even relevant to the food? I don't know. But it's very hard to get past.

I have the first Edible Cookbook which I purchased in Traverse Michigan many years ago. It has great recipes and stories from around the country. This Brooklyn edition has some really odd recipes that I find hard to imagine being served in a restaurant. Save your money.

Slightly pretentious.
Thought it was unique to Brooklyn, but they have a version for each big city.
