"What makes this book fascinating is the way that Levitt uses advanced economic techniques ? the kind that would knock me unconscious quicker than chloroform if I had to read them in a textbook ? and applies them to seemingly unexplainable phenomena to produce a new discipline: the answers to questions once thought unanswerable. The answers make for a highly addictive reading experience, free of the jargon and pie charts that would send most readers running for cover."
