9780062063373: Superfreakonomics

Superfreakonomics--the smash hit follow-up to the remarkable New York Times bestselling phenomenon Freakonomics--is back in a new full-color, fully illustrated and expanded edition. The brainchild of rogue economist Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner that once again brilliantly challenges our view of the way the world really works is presented with a new, visual, superfreaky dimension added, enhancing the already provocative thinking about street prostitutes, hurricanes, heart attacks, and other seemingly mundane matters that made Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics part of the national zeitgeist.

Product Description:

Here at last is the long awaited sequel to the international bestselling phenomenon, Freakonomics. Steven Levitt, the original rogue economist, and Stephen Dubner have been working hard, uncovering the hidden side of even more controversial subjects, from charity to terrorism and prostitution. And with their inimitable style and wit, they will take us on another even more gripping journey of discovery.

Superfreakonomics will once again transform the way we look at the world.

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)

Book Description Harper Collins Publ. USA Jul 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 172x105x25 mm. Neuware - In 2005, Freakonomics exploded like a bomb on the culture, forever changing the way we understand the way the world works, how we really make decisions, and. how we name our children. After more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list, three million copies sold, and single-handedly inventing a genre of books, University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and New York Times writer Stephen Dubner now return with SUPERFREAKONOMICS. Based on entirely new research, it's bigger, more provocative, and ready to challenge the way we think all over again. 297 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780062063373
