3.0 out of 5 stars Check what you're buying!, 29 May 2009
I bought this without realising that it's a severely abridged (one Audio CD, running time 65min or so) German language version of Freakonomics - My Deutsch is *extremely* rusty ;)

Can't fully judge the product of course, although I enjoyed the book, but a book as shortened as this has to be of limited value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good book, 5 Jan 2009
I must emphasise that I only read five or six puzzles in this book but the reason I didn't read any more is that the ones I did try were terrible - I wondered at first whether it was a spoof book!

The solutions I read couldn't have been arrived at without any sensible reasoning; you could have picked any number of feeble 'reasons' to explain them.

Again, not having read the whole thing, I can't be sure that this is a fair summary. One star for balance!
