SuperFreakonomics in Paperback!

SUPERFREAKONOMICS by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. DubnerThe paperback edition of Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner’s sequel to Freakonomics is now available in paperback—with new material, including 16 pages of color illustrations and an author Q&A.

By applying economic thinking and carefully explained data analysis to current social concerns, SuperFreakonomics shows students how to think critically. Whether investigating a solution to global warming or explaining why TV caused a rise in crime, Levitt and Dubner see the world for what it really is—good, bad, ugly, and, in the final analysis, superfreaky.

Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics are required reading in courses on everything from composition to statistics. And, we've produced free teaching materials for professors of composition, rhetoric, economics, quantitative analysis, and statistics.

“An inventive and even useful application of economics to unusual subjects. . . . The strength of this book, as of the original, is in how it applies the time-tested tools of economics in unusual places to turn up surprising conclusions.”—BusinessWeek
