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.

Levitt has an interesting approach on all subjects. He likes numbers and as an expert data miner he manages to reach some freaky results. Some are quite surprising indeed. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Anibal Madeira
