I know many of you have come to trust this blog for my in-depth, thoughtful, and insightful book reviews. So here’s another one:
Freakonomics kind of sucked. There’s not really much of a story. Each chapter is totally unrelated to the rest of the book. The only part that was cool was the chapter where they argue that the deep decline in the crime rate in the 1990s was the result of the legalization of abortion in the 1970s.
I liked that part because it gets anti-choice people all up in a tizzy, and I’m in favor of anything that makes those fart knockers mad.
Other than that, it was pretty lame book.
I give Freakonomics two Jihadis out of five.
