Description
The New York Times bestselling authors of Freakonomics offer a blueprint for an entirely new way to solve problems, whether your interest lies in minor lifehacks or major global reforms.
Description
Levitt and Dubner take us inside their thought process and teach us all to think a bit more productively, more creatively, more rationally-- to think, that is, like a Freak. Whether your interest lies in minor lifehacks or major global reforms, you'll learn to put away your moral compass, think like a child, and discover how incentives rule our world.
