The legendary bestsellers Freakonomics and Super Freakonomics that made millions look at the world in a radically different way returns is packed in this box set.
Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? Which should be fear more: snakes or french fries? Why do sumo wrestlers cheat? In this groundbreaking book, Freakonomics leading economist Steven Levitt—Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and winner of the American Economic Association’s John Bates Clark medal for the economist under 40 who has made the greatest contribution to the discipline—reveals that the answers. Joined by acclaimed author and podcast host Stephen J. Dubner, Levitt presents a brilliant—and brilliantly entertaining—account of how incentives of the most hidden sort drive behavior in ways that turn conventional wisdom on its head.
Super Freakonomics is smash-hit sequel to FREAKONOMICS. Freakonomics lived on the New York Times bestseller list for an astonishing two years. Now authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with more iconoclastic insights and observations in SuperFreakonomics—the long awaited follow-up to their New York Times Notable blockbuster. Based on revolutionary research and original studies SuperFreakonomics promises to once again challenge our view of the way the world really works.
