Book Description

After being in development for a period of four years, SuperFreakonomics poses questions that are not only challenging but also surprising: What’s more risky; driving intoxicated or walking drunk? Is there a chance that changing your sexual orientation could increase your income? If chemotherapy is so unsuccessful, why does it seem to be administered so frequently?

The book “SuperFreakonomics” forces us to reconsider the way we think by investigating the hidden aspects of every topic by posing questions like the following:

 

  • Why are physicians notorious for not cleaning their hands properly?
  • How much of a difference do car seats make?
  • What is the most effective method for capturing a terrorist?
  • How is a woman who works the streets comparable to Santa Claus working in a department store?
  • Is it possible that television was the cause of an increase in crime?
  • What do natural disasters like storms, heart attacks, and deaths on the road have in common?
  • Does eating kangaroo have the potential to save the earth?
  • Who brings in more money, a pimp or a real estate agent?
  • Which trait, selflessness or selfishness, is more deeply ingrained in the human psyche?

 

No one else does a better job than Levitt and Dubner of combining clever thinking with entertaining narrative, whether they are finding a solution to the problem of global warming or explaining why the cost of oral sex has decreased to such a significant degree. They portray the world for what it really is – good, ugly, horrible, and in the end, really spooky – by analyzing how individuals react to being offered incentives. This shows the world for what it truly is.

Freakonomics has been the subject of numerous imitations, but its competition has not been found until now, with the publication of SuperFreakonomics.
