Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool?
What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common?
How much do parents really matter?

These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to parenting and sports—and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives—how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

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 cont… (View complete review)

Amazing

This book is awesome. It explained the most logical reason behind facts which are connected with our day to day lives. Some explanations were eye opener indeed. It gave logical reasons behind the sudden decrease in term life insurance premiums in 90's and sudden disappearance of criminals in early 2… (View complete review)

A brief overview of Freakonomics


This epic book by Steven Levitt deals with the power of Data Mining with respect to relevance in the real world and with respect to Economic Theory.It is especially of special relevance to us Computer Science undergraduates because of the methods that helped him recognize the trends of cheating via the data from the schools of Chicago .

This book has unearthed similar trends in different aspects of American Society and the International society ranging from the Ku Klux Klan to the Sumo wrestlers of Japan.It also delves into The economics of drug dealing , including the abject workin

Before there was shoddy talking, and then

Freakonomics explores the depth and breadth of the notion of it -- thereby making everydays life explicable in terms of them.... the tenet : " People responds to incentive" - and that is what Utility is - in layman terms.
This exploration is fascinating - a must read for anyone.

Good reading

I really liked it. But I am a student of economics and see the inter connections between various things myself.

For other it might look like bunch of oped columns put together to tell the author's findings and conclusions of his academic research.

Some of his methodologies are not as novel, but clearly credit should go to his observation skills.

I liked the part when he said entering your own data gives you a better understanding of data. It is partly true, but as an auditor, I find that if you spend enough time with any data you will find the patterns you do not actuall

Makes a very good read

It definitely helps you see things differently. The language is simple and the content has been presented in a very neat way, makes a very quick read while allowing you to develop a bent of mind that helps you look at things from different angles. I felt it was a very gripping book. Helps you understand self-interest, incentives and motivation among other things. It is also a myth-buster and a good presentation of case studies. Overall, a very good read.
