Herkese karşı nazik olun!
Ne eğlenceli bir kitap! Oğlum ve ben bunu iki gün içinde okuduk. Yazmayı bitirdiğini anladığım devamı için sabırsızlanıyorum!
Conventional Wisdom? You thought it was a good thing right? Wrong. The man who coined this term regarded it rather as a 'convenient, comfortable, and comforting, but NOT necessarily true'. Rather invented by a consensus of journalistically inclined 'experts'. Ever given a thought that the drop in crime in the 90s was caused by Row vs. Wade & legalized abortion? Or that real estate agents act much like the in the KKK? Freakonomics is a definite interesting read. For anyone with a open mind and an interest to hear theories about the cause and effect of some very prevalent topics in modern day life from a perspective that you would likely not hear anywhere else. The book poses some interesting questions; it is of course all theory, but then again, what isn't? The last few chapters drawl on just a bit, but overall a very good read.
I loved this book. I thought it might be mostly sarcasm but its a fascinating history of the puritans settling Boston. It really makes one think about the corruption of religion. Ah, the varied meanings to "the city on the hill...." Its really well researched, cohesive, and there are quite a few laugh moments because of the absurdity of truth. If you are a Jon Stewart fan, you will love Sarah Vowell.
A sad and interesting tale, in the vein of other Scandinavian police detective stories; well-written and worth reading.
