    "So I have actually read Freakonomics over 15 times. Its one of my favorite books. Unfortunatly for this topic, the book has nothing to do with Christianity and its on the far far far left spectrum of being a business book. Its a comical statistics book. "

    "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!"

    "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."

    "As an economics major, listening to Freako improved my undrsatnding of the world economics. Not only that, I also got to understood everyday decision making of people when it comes to spending or saving and lots of other economics events."

    "ive heard about this book from a few people actually. everyone says how good the book is and that i should read it"

    "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."

    "There's not much to say here. Freakonomics is a cornerstone of economics. Its not the end all and be all, but its a great resource. Stop debating and get it."

    "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!"
