Superfreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prost&hellip by Steven D. Levitt
4 of 12 people found the following review helpful
There is not much to say, starting the first chapter with Asian bashing (Indians have small penis for condoms and bride burning is every turn of the corner! etc.), the author is going through a plethora of popular myths and gossip columns to make an easy read which portrayed as intellectual thought, rather musing. I suggest don't waste money on this book or wait till the readers dump the book for 0.01, still a waste of money. There are no cultural or scientific studies, new ideas or anything intellectual about this.
The Steel Claw: Vanishing Man by KEN BULMER

The Steel Claw comics are always nostalgic and thrilling. The protagonist Louis Crandall's ability to invisible (except his steel claw, hence the name)when electricity passes through him, thanks to a lab accident, made him a criminal then a crime fighter. Vanishing Man is the first three stories of Steel Claw. The hero of the sixties to eighties are return with the original strip comic feast. The Steel Claw is a classic example of the golden age of comics.
Past and Future Crimes: Deservedness and Dangerous&hellip by Andrew Von Hirsch
An excellent research in penology and criminology. I personally think that this book is misrepresented or ignored by its vague title "Past or Future Crimes : Deservedness and Dangerousness in the Sentencing of Criminals." Don't judge this book by its title. As a penological research this work is outstanding with an interesting perspective in the subject of incarceration and provides an erudite perspective on Utilitarianism.
