come on guys-- youre having a laugh,
This review is from: Superfreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance (Paperback)
I loved freakonomics and was looking forward to this sequel. What a disappointment.
Firstly the book was 270 pages long, of that there are 80 pages yes eighty pages of introduction,explanatory notes ,contents,epilogue and index leaving 190 pages of prose. Given the authors propensity to repeat and regurgitate facts you can get the picture that there is not much new in this book. The ability of these guys to spin out a very few facts into a whole chapter is amazing. A disappointment but it makes one wonder about the veracity of the first book. sorry guys you should have had this book edited and then rejected.
