So, having spent plenty of time putting the boot into Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt’s Freakonomics series, and its silly oversimplification of rational actor theory, it would have been churlish to refuse to review the latest and hopefully last in the franchise – Think Like A Freak. And do you know what? I actually enjoyed it, even with its well worn van Halen anecdote. So here’s the review, published in the THE. THE Think Like a Freak 072014, or, find it online here.
I also turned up in THE’s summer reads, looking forward to Michael Lewis’ Flashboys – which I have read – and contemplating a return to Latour’s Pasturiazation of France. Here’s the PDF THE Summer Reads 2014 and the link.
