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.
