Challenging the way we view the world again! Levitt and Dubner open up new ways of thinking about pimps, global climate change, organ donation and drunk driving. A welcome, well researched, amusing follow- up to the smash hit Freakonomics. Who knew statistics could be so much fun?

— Shannon, Chicago

Description


Freakonomics lived on the New York Times bestseller list for an astonishing two years. Now authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with more iconoclastic insights and observations in SuperFreakonomics—the long awaited follow-up to their New York Times Notable blockbuster. Based on revolutionary research and original studies SuperFreakonomics promises to once again challenge our view of the way the world really works.
