    SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Can eating kangaroo save the planet? Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else.

    Overall

    I did not think it would be possible for them to produce something better than the first book. I was wrong. This one is even more funny and insightful. You almost feel guilty for having so much fun getting micro-economics lessons. When I studied micro in college it had to be painful or it did not count. These guys are masters of teaching the painful sections of the dismal science in a fun and definitely non-painful way.

    Over the past decade, Malcolm Gladwell has become the most gifted and influential journalist in America. In The New Yorker, his writings are such must-reads that the magazine charges advertisers significantly more money for ads that run within his articles. With his #1 best sellers, The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, he has reached millions of readers. And now the very best and most famous of his New Yorker pieces are collected in a brilliant and provocative anthology.

    Rudi says: "Not Gladwell's best - and a recording problem"
    "Gladwell Better with the Insight of Time"
    Overall

    A must read for Malcolm Gladwell fans and those who will be fans in the future. The collection of New Yorker articles are even more powerful now we see how events played out over time. While it's very likely they were selected for exactly that effect, it does not minimize just how insightful and powerful the original writing were when published. Entertaining and well worth your money. In this case I believe the audiobook is better than the physical book. Gladwell reads for himself and he is very good in that role. Kind of the total package of direct communication to the individual. Very personalized experience.
