Book Review: The Undercover Economist

Another disappointment. Bought this one on a whim from a sale shelf at Powell's, figuring I'd found a Freakonomics-style lightweight tour through different businesses.

Instead The Undercover Economist was, IMHO, difficult to tolerate. There were some good explanations of basic economic theory. However I found the tone overconfident, and many of the examples poorly investigated, or at least lacking the backing material to support his cases. Thus, I can't recommend it.
