From the Publisher
Annotation In 2005, eccentric economist Steven Levitt and journalist Stephen J. Dubner freaked out everyone with their mega-bestselling publishing phenom FREAKONOMICS, wherein they mapped the startling connection between the Roe v. Wade decision and the plummeting crime rate of the 1990s and showed the shared motives of sumo wrestlers and bagel thieves. This even freakier follow-up is filled with more unexpected answers to inquiries that no one else dares to address, as Levitt and Dubner continue to lucidly illuminate the hidden relations between seemingly disparate people and events. They combine their innovative intellects to analyze a range of fascinating social statistics in order to reveal the underlying patterns of behavior which are hidden in the charts and graphs. Why does chemotherapy continue to be routinely prescribed, despite its deleterious effects? What can capuchin monkeys teach us about our spending habits? What's the connection between prostitutes and Santa Claus (ho-ho-ho)? The astonishing answers to these questions and many, many more can only be found in SUPERFREAKONOMICS.
