  • Description
    In this Freak 'how-to' guide, the mavericks behind the Freakonomics phenomenon teach you their secrets: how to challenge conventional wisdom, unravel life's secret codes and think differently - that is, think like a Freak. Levitt and Dubner see the world like no-one else. Now you can too. 'My gut reaction to this life-changing book is "Where have you been all my life?" You will turn pages with delight' Jeffery Taylor, Sunday Express 'Captivating, intellectually robust, funny, surprising and wise. What else can one ask?' Daniel Finkelstein, The Times 'Illuminating, good fun, endearing, genial ... I was delighted' Philip Roscoe, The Times Higher Education 'It's about how to look at the world, and see the ugly truth ... excellent stuff' William Leith, Spectator 'A phenomenon ... their approach has won them a cult following' Observer

    Feeling like a fool

    Based on Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics, my expectations were fairly high but then this book seems to be more of an after-thought, comprising of the remains or rather the left-overs from the previous 2 books.

    Felt like the authors simply wanted to milk the "freak" cow.

    They point out that this could probably be the last book in the freak series and that's the only thing I found to be of interest.

    I wanted to think like a freak but ended up feeling like a fool...

    A good sequel

    This is a sequel of Freakonomics and Super Freakonomics.

    Freak is the term used meaning "different".

    Statistics is extensively used to prove their point.

    This book can fall in Self Help genre.

    A VERY GOOD BOOK.

    Spoils reader experience

    Flipkart has always been my choice for a wide range for shopping products.

    However, I am surprised to find that the quality of the paper of the book (that's been delivered to me) is very sub-standard and it seems pretty comparable to the paper quality of cheap-pirated books available on stalls outside every railway station in Mumbai.

    That, having in mind, FlipKart is a firm who started off with books as its major product,
    it disappoints me to the core to have ordered "a book" from Flipkart.

    Think like a freak

    Sequels have to come out of the shadows of their previous avatars.Think like a freak unfortunately does not.It is a mere pastiche riding on the success of the previous best sellers.

    Think like a freak

    It makes sense to read this book after reading Freakonomics & Super Freakonomics.

    dont waste your time

    The success of the first two books seems to have gotten into the authors heads. Unfortunate that authors of Freakonomics have written a book with no substance. Over and above, its a very badly written book.

    Good Read...good enough to complete the series.

    Not as good as Freakonomics or Superfreakonomics but still well written. I actually read this one first before ordering the first two and none of them disappointed.
