Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 7-8 business days.
  • Delivery times may be longer than usual due to festive demand

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

'Out of Print'

This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Freakonomics : A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 275

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores The Hidden Side Of Everything is the result of the joint collaboration of an economist who thinks out of the box, and an award-winning journalist and author, and their combined perception of the complex world of economics, written in an unconventional and witty manner.

Summary Of The Book

Through a consolidation of articles based on economics, the authors illustrate an unconventional premise about the subject - that economics is, in theory, the study of incentives. Although this work of nonfiction is not based purely on economics, it assesses the various facets of the topic and provides some contemporary and offbeat theories.

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores The Hidden Side Of Everything is broadly divided into six chapters, through which the authors try to unveil the obscure aspects of almost everything under the sun - from how cheating has pervaded into most professions, to the Ku Klux Klan, the functioning of a crack gang, nominative determinism and so much more. Ordinary aspects of our world have been scrutinized by the authors and relayed in a manner bound to shift paradigms and open your eyes to view the same things very differently.

Through these questions, ponderings, and perusals, the authors try to pass on the message that nothing in the world, no matter how complex, is unfathomable, just as long as you ask the right questions. Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores The Hidden Side Of Everything was initially published in 2005, and by 2009 it had sold over four million copies all over the world. It secured second place on the The New York Times Bestsellers List, and was named Book Sense Book of the Year in the Adult Nonfiction category in 2006.

He is a founding partner of a consulting firm named The Greatest Good. He currently resides in Chicago with his wife, Jeannette, and their four children.

Facts from numbers

Astonishing facts gleaned from scientific mining of numbers and data. Freakonomics shows how easily correlation can be mistaken for causes and how to dig out hidden truths. Well written and is centered around interesting case studies.

Unconventional but interesting

“What is the similarity between real-estate agents and sumo wrestlers”; “Why do drug dealers still live with their mothers”; “What is the similarity between the KuKluxKlan and the crack agents” – these questions sound intriguing, don’t they?

Levitt, a renowned (and rather unconventional) economist, in this book, has tried to unravel all these and many more mysteries through economic tools. He relies more on proven data rather than on people’s opinion. In the book he presents some truly incredulous facts. Who would have thought that the dip in the crime rate in the 90’s in the US was …

Its an amazing book. Never thought of mundane things around me with such different perspective. This is a book which will make you start thinking differently. One must go for it if at all you are interested in economics and want to look at it in completely weird yet interesting way. Couldn't keep the book down until the last page.

???

I DO NOT see what's so fascinating about this book. It takes a bunch of unrelated facts and makes them relate in such an obnoxious manner that people are stunned. What most of them fail to realize is that the hilarity of how utterly senseless these connections is what stuns them rather than any content in the book actually making any sort of sense.
