Saturday’s Book – “Freakonomics” by Levitt and Dubner

I had heard that this book was engaging , thought provoking and even amusing.

Therefore I delayed reading it till the trip to Alaksa.

Four people (two young adults /teenagers ) on the road together for three weeks – nothing like adding some unusual topics to discuss along the way! The chapter “Do parents really matter?” really caught everyone’s attention (it includes the question “Does it matter if parents read aloud to their kids or not!!!! Boy, have I read aloud!!!) . The chapter about the reduction of violence in the USA during the 1990’s was also fascinating!

Even if you aren’t going on the road for three weeks – it IS an engaging, thought provoking and amusing book! Glad I read it!
