More comments on Freedomnomics

I'm just getting started on this book. So far, it is--thankfully!--a much more interesting read than Dr. Lott's More Guns, Less Crime, which is a marvelous repository of information and should be on the shelf of everyone interested in the second amendment, self-defense, crime, and liberty, but is nevertheless, for the most part, a drearily boring exposition of reams of statistical data that only the most determined reader will slog through to confirm a thesis which is intuitively obvious to most of us: a ubiquitously armed citizenry suffers less crime.

Well, I didn't mean to slam More Guns, Less Crime. Like I said, it should be on shelves everywhere. I'm just sayin' Freedomnomics looks to be a considerably more entertaining read, though no less informative.

Thanks, but is there any reasoning behind your claim?

Well! Thanks for the link, Dr. Lott. At least one or two people have followed it.

I'm almost done with Freedomnomics and will be reviewing it shortly.

Thanks, Dan. I look forward to reading your review. Of course, I always appreciate it when people put up their reviews on places such as Amazon.com. In any case, thanks.
