Indie Cred

Every time you think award season is over, something new and exciting comes along. This week, it’s the 2006 Book Sense Book of the Year award. The award recognizes the titles independent booksellers most enjoyed handselling during the past year, so it’s especially gratifying to hear that Freakonomics took home the prize in adult nonfiction. Thank you, booksellers.

  3. Our Public Economics class has a question: on page 170 you say that “headstart has repeatedly proven ineffectual”. No citations here! Yet Currie JEP 15-2, 2001, draws a different conclusion from her review of the evidence– can you direct us to a literature review that supports your interpretation?
