Reviews for Superfreakonomics
In the same spirit as the first book from Levitt and Dubner, Superfreakonomics covers a multitude of topics that range from the often pondered to the previously overlooked. In their efforts to bring facts and figures to the world of human behaviour they delve into the world of prostitutes and real estate, climate change, altruism, seatbelts, hygiene in hospitals, and many more. These present sometimes surprising, and oftentimes alarming results.
Superfreakonomics is broad ranging in its subject areas but the reader is never left with a feeling of confusion as the authors present their evidence in a highly accessible way, even for the least economically minded.
A great follow up to Freakonomics! by Meagan
