Hailed as “genius,” “provocative,” and even “eye-popping,” Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner’s Freakonomics spent more than two years on the New York Times Best Sellers list and sold more than 4 million copies worldwide. The book’s analyses—based on rigorous economic research—offered surprising insights into hot-button issues like cheating, crime, parenting, and class consciousness, in a compelling and readable style. Now, with SuperFreakonomics, the “rogue economist” and the award-winning journalist delve into the hidden agendas of all kinds of individuals, and the incentives that drive them.
Featuring: Stephen J. Dubner is an author and journalist, formerly a writer and editor for The New York Times Magazine. Mr. Dubner’s appearance at the Free Library is the only public event for the book in the tri-state area.
