    Description

    An economist with an eye for wit and almost everything else gives his opinion on various things: resulting in Freakonomics, a book on getting what you want.

    Summary of the Book

    Following public demands after Steven D. Levitt's first foray into the economics of everything, Stephen J. Dubner revisits Levitt's theories on life, crime, wisdom and everything else under the sun. Levitt's studies link the questions which put drug lords in their mother's houses, how good parenting doesn't really influence education and how the Ku Klux Klan and real-estate agents are similar.

    A brilliantly flawed piece of work

    Steven Levitt, the main author, despite his extraordinary scholarly achievements in Economics, is less interested in the science itself and more so in how it affects the behavior of common people. His often hilarious and sometimes far-fetched understanding of how things work never ceases to be entertaining. Stephen Dubner gives him a good helping hand to broaden the perspective of the text.

    This book is perhaps more accurately described to be at the borderline between fiction and non-fiction...

    As the name says

    This books covers topics like cheating among the sumo wrestlers, information control as applied to the Ku Klux Klan and real-estate agents,the economics of drug dealin...

    Really Nice

    Levitt shows us analysis of data in a comprehensive manner that only experts are capable of .Although book has no direct relation to economics , rather it shows what would be the motive for ,for instance, a criminal or cheater behind a crime ,may it be social or economical by referring to data.
