Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Takes an unconventional look at how the economy really works, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, offering a very different view on what really matters and what really drives the economy, in an edition than includes a new preface, additional material, and a Q&A with the author and Stephen Dubner. 500,000 first printing. Original.


Review:

"Levitt has compiled a greatest hits mix of his research....FREAKONOMICS is accessible to people who don't understand regression analysis, the procedure statisticians use to sort through data....He relishes studying us...."

Time, 05/02/2005

Review:

"[Levitt and Dubner's] clever juxtapositions, the way they constantly mine illuminating truths by contrasting seemingly unrelated topics, is what makes FREAKONOMICS a romp to read....FREAKONOMICS is a splendid book, full of unlikely but arresting historical details that distinguish the authors from the run of pop social scientists. Readers may even find themselves developing a dose of skepticism about the world--no bad thing."

Roger Lowenstein, New York Times, 06/19/2005

More Than 4 Million Copies Sold WorldwidePublished in 35 LanguagesWhich is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool?What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common?How much do parents really matter?These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life--from cheating and crime to parenting and sports--and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives--how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.
