Entertaining to listen to, but not very edifying nor especially helpful either (get ALL the information, consider the incentives of each person involved, delay decisions somewhat, etc.).

I've listened to all the Freakanomic podcasts, so I found most of this stuff mentioned in this book mentioned in their podcast. But if you aren't a loyal listener to the podcast, I'd recommend reading it. It's still good, just personally it felt regurgitated.

Very interesting. Makes me want to read their other books. I gained some new insight into persuasion and creative thinking.

The authors warn that if you follow their advice, expect to be unpopular or even ostracized by other people. Their premise is that most people don't trust the data when making decisions. Instead, their internal beliefs and/or moral compasses more strongly determine their decisions. As in their previous two books, Dubner and Levitt use startling examples to illustrate their points. You can even participate in their online poll to determine big decisions in your life with the toss of a coin. Interesting, provocative reading!

Listening to this book was entertaining and easy to listen to because it's a collection of true stories which try to convince you to look at problems differently in order to solve them.

As with their previous books, Freakonomics, and Superfreakonomics, the authors proceed to relate several interesting stories to illustrate key lessons on how to look at problems in a fresh light. The attempt in this book draw general lessons that the reader can apply to problems in their life. The basic issue with the premise is that when they analyze a problem, the solution in hindsight looks obvious. But solutions to problems in our own life by nature are not obvious.
