Freakonomics




Ok, I'm not really on an economics and money-talking binge, but this documentary is awesome because it feels like you are learning about issues that you might be dealing with but was afraid to admit it.  And it all has to do with economics and statistics.  Super interesting- even the bare  (pun IS intended) truth about sumo wrestlers.  That should get you to watch it!  Yep, sumo wrestling is in this movie.

I read this book a few years ago and it is equally good.  Personally, it made me think more about my core values and how I behave when the odds are against me.  It really is a sobering idea.
