It's also pretty sweet that Michael Lewis wrote another favorite book of mine, "Moneyball".
Just finished Moneyball, great book. A few months back I finished one of his newer books "The Blind Side" It's about the emergence of the Left Tackle in football and how linemen started becoming so valuable in the NFL.
Didn't like Freakonomics, kind of like The Tipping Point and all these other "social science" books that make dubious connections between different phenomena. Kind of like intellectualism for idiots, people will read books like these and it makes them feel smarter (I think there is even a blurb on the back of the book that says something like, 'This book made me feel smart') when in reality the writers are presenting a bunch of half-baked ideas that are only vaguely intriguing. For instance one of the chapters in Freakonomics talks about how people think guns are so dangerous, yet swimming pools kill many more children a year than guns. And I guess that fact is supposed to be surprising to people.
Fooled By Randomness is one of the best books I have ever read and it explains amazing things about the way people think. It changed the way I think about things in general.
Kidderek - Just kind of see-sawing back and forth, I literally change my mind every day, and each time I change my mind I'm convinced that its for the last time, but then I'll talk to an alum of one of these schools or re-read a viewbook or something and totally change my mind again.
