Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

Where does Kill Your Blog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The language is a little inappropriate, but the content is solid. I only made a few of the minor suggestions, and I already feel better about my writing, my domains, etc...
