"If you like Tyler Cowen's writing on the best economics blog in the universe, you will love this book. Cowen combines an economist's tools with a teenager's recklessness, addressing problems like: how to keep meetings short, how to hire a tour guide in Marrakesh, and how to incentivize your kids to wash the dishes. His creativity is a gift." --Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, authors of "Freakonomics"
