A very interesting book. No math, so it’s accessible to whomever would like to read it. Instead, there’s a whole bunch of discussions of interesting questions asked by a very bright economist. Don’t worry, though, you won’t find the words “feduciary” or “treasury” or any of that kind of things. Instead the authors discuss the link between grade school teachers and sumo wrestlers (and their ethicalness); the relative dangers of guns and swimming pools, and driving and flying; the link between abortions and violent crime; and how parents can affect their children’s futures, from choice of school to choice of name.
The non-economist co-author helps make the book readable – the style is as good as Brian Greene’s or John Allen Paulos, and the questions raised are genuinely interesting – it’s a “don’t sleep until you finish” book.
