Format: Paperback
This book is a general interest book- and it certainly is interesting. The book, for anyone looking for an entertaining read, will like it. In a nutshell, the book takes a look at all sorts of things in society, from crack gangs to parenting, and then attempts to make sense of them by applying econonmic principles. According to the book, economics is really the study of incentives, and so using this kind of angle, the book comes up with answers to why things work the way they do.

A book that's hard to put down, I'm sure many readers will enjoy it. Also recommend The Sixty-Second Motivator for a more simplistic explanation of what motivates people and gives them incentives to do what they do.

Was an interesting read. If you enjoy statistical analysis of stuff, you will enjoy it too. If not, then this book is not for you.

One of my favorite books. I found so many chapters fascinating, and it was my first exposure to economics in a way that I could understand. The chapter on names is particularly interesting (and hilarious!) I can't remember the number of times some of the stories from this book have come up at dinner or cocktail parties - from politics to drug dealers, there is something everyone can relate to.

It's actually pretty easy to read.I had heard a lot about this book and so I was curious. Its interesting the way that he pulls apart data to come to in depth, completely logical conclusions.
