I enjoyed Freakanomics because they showed the details (correctly or incorrectly) of how they came to their conclusion. After listening to this book, I do question some of their findings.
Unfortunately this author did not go into as much detail. I found myself constantly asking the author, "How do you know that is true?" Because of the lack of details and the author's conservative (no surprise by the title) views, I got the feeling this was more of a political book than economic book.
Because of this, as the book went on, after giving an introduction to a problem, it was easy to guess which one the author would argue for. Even if it seemed to contradict what the author said earlier. As another reviewer said, this made the book seem repetitive in the end.
It was a decent listen, just not great.
