Book Discussion - Freakonomics

This months book for discussion is... Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner 

For a change this month we will be reading a popular non-fiction title.

"Cult bestseller, new buzz word..."Freakonomics" is at the heart of everything we see and do and the subjects that bedevil us daily: from parenting to crime, sport to politics, fat to cheating, fear to traffic jams. Asking provocative and profound questions about human motivation and contemporary living and reaching some astonishing conclusions, "Freakonomics" will make you see the familiar world through a completely original lens."

The Book group is also part of High Wycombe and Marlow Social group, and the next few Book Group events will be on both Meetup sites, until we transition completely onto this meetup page.

We usually meet on the last Sunday afternoon of each month at the Bootlegger pub opposite the railway station in Wycombe for discussion of one specific book.

 Books are chosen by the hosts from suggestions given by Book Club members, please come along with your ideas for what we can read in future months!

Do not hesitate to contact one of the hosts for more information.

    Thanks all for coming, wish we had had a real fan of the book to defend it, but was a really interesting discussion and a great way to spend Sunday afternoon!

    Sorry to cancel last minute, not feeling well. But I enjoyed the book (though some of the stuff is rather old news now).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
