Product description

Review

‘A phenomenon … their approach has won the book a cult following’ -- Observer

‘A sensation … you’ll be stimulated, provoked and entertained. Of how many books can that be said?’ -- Sunday Telegraph

‘Freakonomics reads like a detective novel … has you chuckling one minute and gasping in amazement the next’ -- Wall Street Journal

‘The book is a delight; it educates, surprises and amuses … dazzling’ -- Economist

‘Total controversy … Levitt has shocked the world’ -- Sunday Express

From the Inside Flap

In which the book's central idea is set forth: namely, if morality represents how
people would like the world to work, then economics shows how it actually does
work.

Why the conventional wisdom is so often wrong...How "experts"-from
criminologists to real-estate agents to political scientists-bend the facts...Why
knowing what to measure, and how to measure it, is the key to understanding
modern life... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
