book review: freakonomics

I finally read Freakonomics because Holly had a copy and was reading it. I read the chapters all out of order but I doubt it makes much of a difference to the experience.

Yeah, it’s a decent book. There are lots of interesting stories about how things work differently than conventional wisdom would have it. My favourite part (that I hadn’t heard before) was about how the Ku Klux Klan had its knees knocked out by their rituals being made fun of on the Superman radio show. I like it when irreverently telling the truth does some good in the world.
