First of all- as many have already mentioned- do not pay $25 for this book. It can be read very quickly at the local Library. I believe that many people would enjoy "Freakonomics" and should read it... …

1776 is not the story of a year--not even a year of the American Revolution--but is rather a military history of the Continental Army from late 1775 until early 1777 with an emphasis on the development …

There's been a run of pop-science books lately which attempt to explain the mysteries of life in easy-to-understand terms. Nearly all that I've seen are ignorance talking to ignorance. "Freakonomics" …
