Jauntier and more assured than the first. --Time Magazine
Entertaining, well-written, and full of surprises and insights....I really liked Freakonomicsand I think SuperFreakonomics is even better...I recommend this book to anyone who reads nonfiction. It is very well written and full of great insights. --Bill Gates
Présentation de l'éditeur
In 2005, FREAKONOMICS exploded like a bomb on the culture, forever changing the way we understand the way the world works, how we really make decisions, and ... how we name our children. After more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list, three million copies sold, and single-handedly inventing a genre of books, University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and New York Times writer Stephen Dubner now return with SUPERFREAKONOMICS. Based on entirely new research, it s bigger, more provocative, and ready to challenge the way we think all over again.
