The New York Times bestselling Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation, selling more than four million copies in thirty-five languages and changing the way we look at the world. Now Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with Superfreakonomics, and fans and newcomers alike will find that the freakquel is even bolder, funnier, and more surprising than the first.

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

–How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa?

–What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common?

–Can eating kangaroo save the planet?

Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else. By examining how people respond to incentives, they show the world for what it really is—good, bad, ugly, and, in the final analysis, super freaky

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

    " Just not very good. Over simplification of data; lots of biased assumptions; storytelling to support their correlation theories. I think they became cocky after the first book and thought they could write outlandish stuff for the general public. But then they bypassed a lot of scientific rigor and overstated studies' results. The stats in here may impress the lay person, but i couldn't get away with this stuff at my office. "

    " Don't wast your time. The first one was great but this was a bust. "

    " I didn't find this to be anywhere near as engaging as the first one. "
