Book Review: Superfreakonomics (S.Dubner & S.Levitt)

Book title: Superfreakonomics
Author(s): Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. Dubner

Nevertheless, I did enjoy a few chapters in particular: What Al Gore and Mount Pinatubo have in common?
In this chapter as i have touched upon earlier in my global warming article the authors look at global warming from an economic angle and to be honest they do quite a good job.

For further information you may just have to read it - but only certain sections of course!
