About the Book

Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation, selling more than four million copies.

Now Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with SuperFreakonomics, and fans and newcomers alike will find that this freakquel is even bolder, funnier, and more surprising than the first.

SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, with such questions as:

  • How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa?
  • What's the best way to catch a terrorist?
  • What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common?
  • Are people hardwired for altruism or selfishness?
  • Can eating kangaroo save the planet?

Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else, whether investigating a solution to global warming or explaining why the price of oral sex has fallen so drastically.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“[Levitt and Dubner’s] clever juxtapositions, the way they consistently mine illuminating truths by contrasting seemingly unrelated topics, is what makes ‘Freakonomics’ a romp of a read. . . .Freakonomics is a splendid book, full of unlikely but arresting historical details that distinguish the authors from the run of pop social scientists.” (New York Times) —
