A Good Christmas Present?

On December 25th and 26th, Amazon will be giving away free e-book copies of my Fundamentals of Environmental Economics. This is not your typical textbook. This book presents many new ideas and examples as it discusses articles from the NY Times and from the frontier of environmental and urban economics. After teaching my 116 student course at UCLA this fall, I completely rewrote the book. If you download it and read parts of it, please send me your thoughts. My only other present I can offer to all is a funny talk I gave on the Future of Chicago.
