Description

Four years in the making; SuperFreakonomics asks not only the tough questions; but the unexpected ones: What’s more dangerous; driving drunk or walking drunk? Can a sex change boost your salary? Why is chemotherapy prescribed so often if it’s so ineffective?

SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again; exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as:

  • Why are doctors so bad at washing their hands?
  • How much good do car seats do?
  • What’s the best way to catch a terrorist?
  • How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa?
  • Did TV cause a rise in crime?
  • What do hurricanes; heart attacks; and highway deaths have in common?
  • Can eating kangaroo save the planet?
  • Which adds more value: a pimp or a Realtor?
  • Are people hard-wired for altruism or selfishness?

Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else; whether investigating a solution to global warming or explaining why the price of oral sex has fallen so drastically. By examining how people respond to incentives; they show the world for what it really is – good; ugly; bad; and; in the final analysis; super freaky.

Freakonomics has been imitated many times over – but only now; with SuperFreakonomics; has it met its match.
