I found this book very interesting vacation reading.
This book does not emphasize right or wrong, fact or fiction; it emphasizes what a person can see, learn or understand when you break out of conventional thinking.
Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner is a great book that provides a very interesting twist on economics.
