The author tells us in her novel that Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics are the two books which inspired the author to write hers and I'm happy she did!
I don't normally read nonfiction but I was able to enjoy this book because of how the author used realistic examples to explain her theories and points. My favorite being about tobacco. I didn't realize how high the death rate was for cigarette users ("I'll Quit Tomorrow") and of course, I knew cigarettes can be addicting but I enjoyed seeing the economics behind such a product. This was a great find and I hope to see more from this author in the near future!!
Kelly's book is written in a clever way but it is still full of depth and examples that provoke you to think about each situation. It took me awhile to read this book, a chapter at a time, to fully grasp what was being said. (I do take awhile to read things in general) E.co.nom.ics will make you look at things in a different light that or give a greater understanding of how things work.
Note: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.The above review is based on my opinions.
