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.
