    Life sometimes seems illogical. Individuals do strange things: take drugs, have unprotected sex, mug each other. Love seems irrational, and so does divorce. On a larger scale, life seems no fairer or easier to fathom - why do some neighborhoods thrive and others become ghettos? Why is racism so persistent? Why is your idiot boss paid a fortune for sitting behind a mahogany altar? Thorny questions, and you might be surprised to hear the answers coming from an economist.

    John Lee does an excellent job of narrating "The Logic of Life." I can't believe the number of complicated topics that Harford explains, and Lee delivers the humor and the unexpected segues without overdoing them. He reads slowly enough that you can follow along without having to rewind too often--though you might want to rewind some, especially on the sections about romance, racism and addiction, because the content gets so interesting. I kept thinking, "So that's why it works that way." This was one of my best purchases in a long while, because I think I'll retain a lot of what I learned, and it was a pleasure to listen to.
