What the community says about Freakonomics
- "This book puts on a new spin for economics, but in a very enthralling, informative and interesting twist. While it is unconventional from what one would expect to learn from reading an economic book, it's actually quite refreshing and a great book! The author poses questions that many would not think falls into the category of economics, but he will explain why it does and may blow your mind a bit with this knowledge. I think it's a wonderful, new twist to what could be a bland read!"

in What are the funniest books"This is the type of book I am looking for honestly as of right now of just finishing a book that is all about adventure, I am in the mood to purchase something satire like Freakonomics. I have not read the book yet but I am confident enough to say that this is one of the few books on top of my head that is one of the best when it comes to being hilarious for me to recommend to others."
- "If you're into books with apples on the cover this is one of the best! Its a really interesting look at economics that is simple for a layperson to understand. This isn't a boring textbook, it gives a much more fascinating look at economics and how it explains our motivations."
- "Freakonomics has a reputation for bringing economics to the common person. The reputation is deserved, but like the authors explain when discussing the realtor scenario - always look for conflict of interest. Are the authors actually telling us the whole story, or are they just trying to sell their books - then their movie? Freakonomics is an OK beginner book, and I hope it bodes well for things to come, however it is not the ideal result of getting economic concepts into everyday hands. It is indeed distorted and manipulative in its own way."
- "This is an eye-opening book that shows how economics and statistics can explain why our world works the way it does. Some of the reasonings seem a bit far fetched, but this is definitely not my area of expertise, so who am I to judge? Anyway, definitely the most interesting book on economics I've ever read!"
