Sequel to the international bestseller "Freakonomics", Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner's "Superfreakonomics" is an irresistible look at the counterintuitive science of everyday life. The Freakquel is here. In "Superfreakonomics" Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner look deeper, question harder and uncover even more hidden truths about our world, from terrorism to shark attacks, cable TV to hurricanes. They ask, among other things: What's a sure-fire way to catch a terrorist? Are people hard-wired for altruism or selfishness? Which cancer does chemotherapy work best for? Why is combating global warming easier than we think? Sometimes, the most superfreaky solution is the simplest. "Travels further than its predecessor...Levitt is a master at drawing counter-intuitive conclusions". ("Sunday Times"). "Fascinating ...studded with intriguing examples". ("Daily Telegraph"). "Like "Freakonomics", but better ...you are guaranteed a good time". ("Financial Times"). "Page-turning, politically incorrect and ever-so-slightly intoxicating, like a large swig of tequila". ("The Times"). Steven D. Levitt teaches economics at the University of Chicago. His idiosyncratic economic research into areas as varied as guns and game shows has triggered debate in the media and academic circles. He recently received the American Economic Association's John Bates Clark Medal, awarded every two years to the best American economist under forty. Stephen J. Dubner lives in New York City. He writes for "The New York Times" and the "New Yorker", and is the bestselling author of "Turbulent Souls" and "Confessions of a Hero-Worshipper". In August 2003 Dubner wrote a profile of Levitt in "The New York Times" magazine. The extraordinary response that article received led to a remarkable collaboration.
