I've just begun reading John R. Lott's Freedomnomics, and even though I'm not far enough in the book to pretend reviewing it, I'm enjoying a lot the no-nonsense, to-the-point tone and real life case studies — just for that, I would already urge you to read it.

Xrlq at Damnum absque injuria has finished his reading, and has a review, even though:
"I’m conflicted as to whether the reply was necessary, given that Freakonomics itself is more of a puff book than a serious economics treatise. That said, enough people apparently do take Freakonomics’s conclusions seriously enough to make a convincing rebuttal necessary"
No argument here, and even though I wouldn't bother to read Freakonomics (have more than enough Marxist-Leninoid literature, press and governmental applications and programs in my mother tongue without adding English speaking Idiotnomics on top, thank you very much) I'll enjoy the reply.

Incidentally, I ordered this book from a shop in Florida, it travelled to France through New Zealand and I received it in just a few days. The total was much cheaper than what I would have paid if I’d bought it here.

Even before opening the book, I had a firsthand experience of "Why the free market works and other half-baked theories don't".

Lott also wrote a few books on the right to bear arms. Considering what I've seen of Freedomnomics, I bet you there's a bookshop in Florida that has a bit of a profit coming up, alongside a couple of shipping orders to the Old World.

You don't need to theorize the superiority of Capitalism, you just live it.
