I'm organising a small book club at work, and I had intended to get us started with Super Freakonomics as I very much enjoyed the original. However, some of the reviews I've seen are putting me off, and I'm wondering if the Hive has good alternative recommendations.
We're looking for something relatively short and easy to read, so nothing very academic or heavyweight. It has to be related to the fields of business and technology in some way, but the relationship can be very broad.
I've thought of something from Tim Hartford, but haven't wildly enjoyed what I've read of him to date. Gladwell is also out as most people have read most of his stuff, but that's the kind of thing we're looking for.
Thanks in advance!
