Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - Stephen J. Dubner, Steven D. Levitt Liked the parts about the correlation between legalized abortion and decreased crime rates, baby names and future success, and parenting styles. Kind of disappointed to find out that reading often to your child doesn't necessarily make them smarter, but at least being a house full of books is a good indicator.

Kind of glossed over the rest. Not as much of a riveting read as a lot of friends claimed it to be. Maybe I prefer my pop science more in the fields of psychology than economics-- if this is about economics. I had a co-worker who majored in economics and told him about the book and he said it's not really about economics, exactly. Still, the book offers a few things to think about. Wish it were a little more packed with stats.
