Product Description:

Freakonomics lived on the New York Times bestseller list for an astonishing two years. Now authors....

Review:

Levitt is a master at drawing counter-intuitive conclusions . . . great fun . . . Superfreakonomics travels further than its predecessor (Tom Standage, Sunday Times)

There's material here not just for one conversation, but for several (Daily Mail)

A humdinger of a book: page-turning, politically incorrect and ever-so-slightly intoxicating, like a large swig of tequila (The Times)

Levitt and Dubner's zeal for statistical anomalies is as undimmed as their eye for a good story . . . lie back and let Levitt and Dubner's bouncy prose style carry you along from one peculiarity to the next (Sunday Telegraph)

Diagrams, charts and photos alongside the original text explain how things like the Endangered Species Act endangered species and why real people don't behave like people in labs. It's a very cool edition of a very smart book. (BBC Focus)

The new illustrated version of Superfreakonomics, the world's No 1 best-seller - written by economist Steven Levitt and journalist Stephen Dubner - uses the dull subject of economics to analyse unusual subjects with astonishing effect. (The Sun)

Journalist Stephen J Dubner and his co-author, the economist Steven D Levitt, have enraged everyone from climate-change activists to child-safety campaigners by applying rational economic thinking to emotive subjects. (Emily Dugan The Independent on Sunday)
