In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the landmark book Freakonomics comes this curated collection from the most readable economics blog in the universe. When Freakonomics was first published, the authors started a blog--and they've kept it up. The writing is more casual, more personal, even more outlandish than in their books. Now they've gone through and picked the best of the best. Here, they ask a host of typically off-center questions: Why don't flight attendants get tipped? If you were a terrorist, how would you attack? And why does KFC always run out of fried chicken?.--From publisher description.

Easy read of the top blog posts of the Freakonomics blog. A ton of interesting ideas are presented, some comedic and others touching on issues like gun control and health care. Would have liked to have seen some, if not most, of the ideas explored more in detail but hopefully they're saving that for a future book.

An interesting collection of blogs. I skipped many of them but there were a few that were interesting and useful such as how the internet changed car buying and the new car mating dance. Worth reading if you are shopping around for a car.

They're really cashing in with this book, a reprint of their best blog posts. That said, it was a light and entertaining read, and provided a good overview of the range of topics they have examined through the lens of an economist.
