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.

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?

As the name says'The rogue economist'Steven Levitt, a renowned Havard scholar, who studies the riddles of everyday life and has a very good reputation of analysing things in an unorthodox manner. And the same non-traditional analysis on freaky topics has been presented in this book.

Simply Superb!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.

One of the most rare kind of booksThe name "Freakonomics" is the most justifiable name for this book. This book has looked into various topics, which are very rarely discussed about. Steven Levitt, a renowned Havard scholar, had already a very good reputation for analysing things in a very un-orthodox mannner. And this books has got a lot of freaky topics.

A good readI heard about this book 8 years back when I was a graduate student in Mechanical Engineering. This book was a part of a course on globalization in my university. I must have borrowed it from the library at that time. Now, I am glad to have owned a copy. This is quite an interesting read on things that impact our everyday lives as told from an economist point of view in a rouge and humorous style.

ExcellentEye opener. Fantastic writing and presentation. The bit about parenting is probably controversial and also culture contextual. Overall great read.

hilariousFreakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They usually begin with a mountain of data and a simple question. Some of these questions concern life-and-death issues; others have an admittedly freakish quality. Thus the new field of study contained in this book: freakonomics.
