Book: Freakanomics

Freakanomics - A book written by Steven D. Levitt and co-authored by Stephen J. Dubner. Steven Levitt is a Professor of Economics @Chicago and the 2003 John Bates Clark Medal winner of the American Economics Association. I found many reviews about this book, however the one line that really impressed me was this - 'If morality represents how we would like the world to work, then economics represents how it actually does work'. Looks interesting on the outset..
This blog would add to the already huge publicity (extensively provided by the authors themselves) for the book!! Personally, would like to get hold of a copy of the book as soon as it is off-the-hold in atleast one of the libraries, and I am talking about multiple-copies in multiple-libraries across the city!
