“It’s a lesson in opportunity cost: if you spend all your time catching the little fish, you won’t have time-or develop the technique, or the patience-to ever catch the big ones.”

This is the last book I’m going to recommend by Levitt and Dubner. I promise. The end. They again focused on economic subjects and personal interests. Some I found less exciting to read about such as poker, golf, NFL, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I did find much more interesting the coverage of the taxes, voting, tipping, gas prices, greenness, crime rates, gangs, guns, prostitution, homelessness, and pirates. It’s basically a book about rants and suggestions, as they comment on the cover, in the form of their best blog entries. I definitely didn’t agree with everything they wrote including their views about changing how voting is conducted and the same with their views about gas prices. I happened to read this primarily while on the stationary bike, but feel free to read it while not exercising. You’ll probably find yourself less re-reading of sentences like I had to do. Enjoy.
