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.
