Think Like a Freak

by Steven D. Levitt


Almost ten years after Freakonomics, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner came up with Think Like A Freak. With this book, they dive deeper into how you can learn to think the way they did when they came up with the original book's material. Thinking like a freak is about seeing the world clearly, as it truly is, not as most of humanity perceives it to be. This way, you can step into your uniqueness and live a life designed for your needs and desires - and ditch other people's opinions.
