Recently, I finished reading Freakonomics, by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. and I have to say that I really liked it!!
The book is focuses on the study of everyday aspects of life using the tools of economics and statistics. What I really liked is that the author is really trying to uncover the truth, and expose those who proliferate propaganda. Anyway, there’s also an accompanying website which hosts a great blog covering a variety of interesting topics.
