Overview

Superfreakonomics is the follow-up book to the insanely popular Freakonomics, published in 2009 by Steven Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. Like all of their co-authored books, it takes an economic approach to what's going on in the real world. The two use statistics and hard data to look at objectively, and find out what really drives human behavior.

The book itself tackles interesting topics like prostitution, terrorism and global warming.  However, the lessons shared here work on a more general level because they're the ones that will help you most embrace the ideas at the heart of this book.
