Excellent Book
This is a book done by two economist looking into abnormal cases. The things they look at are in our everyday lives and very basic. However, through data, they uncover interesting patterns. This is an easy book to read and a real page turner. Besides uncovering different facts they show you what it is like to think differently and outside the box.

Freakin Sweet
This is a really good book. I first heard about it and went over it in a history class in highschool. I really liked the scenarios they used to explain economics. They wrote a second book also and it is very good as well.

Very Enjoyable
This new age econometric type studying and marketing is very interesting. Although he present radical ideas, they are based on decently sound arguments. Not bad, I can dig it.

new view in econ
Great book that showed how people react to incentives. A very different way of looking at economics and made you think about everyday events. Overall was very well written and interesting at times. The authors brought up very interesting examples from sumo wrestlers, crime rates, abortions, school teachers and the KKK etc... with data backing the reasons behind their actions. Am now looking forward to reading their newest book SuperFreakonomics.

This is a great book!
Apples and Oranges is right. This book goes into detail about the economy and really shines a light on how much bullshit it is. The way everything works is so screwed up that there is no way it can work. It also shows why we are in the trouble we are in today and how we will continue to go deeper into the abyss unless something changes dramatically. This is a good read, especially for the narrow minded who don't think outside the box.
