'Freakenomics' - Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. Dubner

I love the fact that this book interloops humor with serious situations. Had the authors not taken this route of writting, I probably wouldn't have been able to make it through this book.
I also love that they make the strangest connections to things that may seem completely irrelevant to the other. Sumo Wrestlers and teachers, real estate agents and KKK, ha!

I understand the point of them and appreciate them, but i think the authors make too many side trips to explain their ideas. Each of these chapters had to be 80+ pages long when they could have easily been 35+ pages. Though i guess that counters the point of making a novel (it's supposed to be long).
