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.

It was probably good in its day. This book was probably ground breaking at the time but it just seems like old news now. It also seem vaguely racist. I'm just not impressed.Published 23 days ago by Susan
