Christina Black's mother has cancer and her father, well, he's vanished.
What will she do without her mother, where will she go when she dies and how will she cope?
A tale for those who are suffering or have suffered loss.
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.
