The Freakonomics Saga Goes on

Here is a quite harsh critique of the new book of the Freakonomics brand. It basically argues that the mine is exhausted and they are simply overextending it.

The problem is, what to do with such reviews? We have explained several times how very bad reviews of Antifragile almost convinced us not to read it (it would have been an enormous mistake). On the other side, just in last week’s chapter, we find how Taleb explains how books are antifragile and benefit from bad critics.

At the end, the review turns out to be useless.
