Here at last is the long-awaited follow-up to the international bestselling phenomenon, Freakanomics. Steven Levitt, the original rogue economist, and Stephen Dubner have uncovered the hidden side of even more controversial subjects, and with their inimitable style and wit they will take us on another, even more gripping journey of discovery.
Four years in the making, Superfreakanomics once again transforms the way we look at the world. It reveals, among other things, why you are more likely to be killed walking drunk than driving drunk; how a prostitute is more likely to sleep with a policeman than be arrested by one; why terrorists might be easier to track down than you would imagine; how a sex change could boost your salary; and how there really is a cheap fix for climate change.
This frequel is even bolder, funnier and more surprising than its predecessor. With their unflinching analysis, Levitt & Dubner overturn received wisdom: looking more deeply, asking more questions, and above all, thinking a little differently. Because sometimes the most superfreaky solution is the simplest.
