Theres a freaky side to everything

I heard about this book about 9 months ago and was always interested in reading it.    The book is basically about economic connections to things that you wouldn’t really think fit.  For example the first chapter of the book is about,  “discovering cheating as applied to teachers and sumo wrestlers.”  The book is a collection of economic articles written by Steven Levitt, an expert who has  gained a reputation for applying economic theory to diverse subjects not usually covered by “traditional” economists.  I never got around to reading the book but six film makers such as Morgan Spurlock, who created “Super Size Me,”  and Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing who made “Jesus Camp” set out to put this books theories to the test.
