Francesca recommends a book

Filed under: Books — Francesca @ 9:06 am

Francesca has been reading the famous book Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything, by the economist Steven D. Levitt and the journalist Stephen J. Dubner.

It is entertaining, and fascinating, and easy to read. Francesca likes!


  1. This book rocks and really started my interest in social economics. I couldn’t put it down and read that sucker over a weekend.

  2. Francesca, the Sh*thead story (in the names section) is real. When my friend the Bodacious Red-headed Pediatrician was doing a fellowship in Memphis (either St Jude or Methodist Children’s — can’t remember), she treated the girl. She pulled the chart and wasn’t sure how to pronounce the name. Sh*thead’s mother corrected her: “That’s shiTHEED!”

    My friend Lindley’s sister in law is a labor and delivery nurse and helped deliver the baby. She pleaded with the mom to pick a different name.

    Lemonjello and orangello, I don’t know about them. Probably urban fiction.
