Steven D. Levitt, a professor of economics at the University of Chicago, was awarded the John Bates Clark medal, given to the most influential American economist under the age of forty. He is also a founder of The Greatest Good, which applies Freakonomics-style thinking to business and philanthropy.
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 worked for The New York Times and published three non-Freakonomics books. He lives with his family in New York City.
I found this book very interesting vacation reading.
This book does not emphasize right or wrong, fact or fiction; it emphasizes what a person can see, learn or understand when you break out of conventional thinking.
Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner is a great book that provides a very interesting twist on economics.
The author takes waaaaay to long to get to the point. Got bored easily.Published 13 hours ago by Reviewer

I was definitely expecting a lot more of the book. It was delivered without a book jacket, and irremovable stickers on the cover. Pages were written on and tattered. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Kevin Kauffman
Yes, it can be an entertaining book, but I probably would not read it again. I found myself skimming pages just so I could start another book. Read morePublished 11 days ago by E
Awesome. It's an easy read, nothing too complicated, just be ready to have an entirely new perspective on things when you are finished.Published 25 days ago by Brian Wendel
