Description


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.

About the Author


STEVEN LEVITT is a Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and an editor of The Journal of Political Economy.

Stephen J. Dubner is an award-winning author, journalist, and radio and TV personality. He quit his first career as an almost rock star to become a writer. He has since taught English at Columbia, worked for The New York Times, and published three non-Freakonomics books.
