Established in 2007 by the Leatherby Libraries, the Community of Readers is the summer reading program for Chapman University. This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Think Like a Freak

Think Like a Freak: The Authors of Freakonomics Offer to Retrain Your Brain

Book Review
If you haven’t read the authors previous books or listened to the Freakonomics podcast, you might be surprised that this book is a highly entertaining easy read. The authors use stories about unexpected topics (e.g., strategies of a hot-dog-eating champion, the logic of David Lee Roth’s famous M&Ms requests) to illustrate their ideas on how to approach problem solving. Much of their advice, such as to admit when you don’t know an answer or quit something that isn’t proving successful, is applicable to problems great and small.
