The New York Times bestselling Freakonomics changed the way we see the world, exposing the hidden side of just about everything. Then came SuperFreakonomics, a documentary film, an award-winning podcast, and more. Now, with Think Like a Freak, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner have written their most revolutionary book yet. With their trademark blend of captivating storytelling and unconventional analysis, they 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. Levitt and Dubner offer a blueprint for an entirely new way to solve problems, whether your interest lies in minor lifehacks or major global reforms. As always, no topic is off-limits. They range from business to philanthropy to sports to politics, all with the goal of retraining your brain. Along the way, you'll learn the secrets of a Japanese hot-dog-eating champion, the reason an Australian doctor swallowed a batch of dangerous bacteria, and why Nigerian e-mail scammers make a point of saying they're from Nigeria. Some of the steps toward thinking like a Freak: - First, put away your moral compass'because it's hard to see a problem clearly if you've already decided what to do about it. - Learn to say "I don't know"'for until you can admit what you don't yet know, it's virtually impossible to learn what you need to. - Think like a child'because you'll come up with better ideas and ask better questions. - Take a master class in incentives'because for better or worse, incentives rule our world. - Learn t o persuade people who don't want to be persuaded'because being right is rarely enough to carry the day. - Learn to appreciate the upside of quitting'because you can't solve tomorrow's problem if you aren't willing to abandon today's dud. Levitt and Dubner plainly see the world like no one else. Now you can too. Never before have such iconoclastic thinkers been so revealing'and so much fun to read.… (mais)

I liked this better than Superfreakonomics, although it still suffers from a lot of repetition from the podcast. I did enjoy how the book was structured as ways to think more critically rather than just a collection of case studies. ( )

Not as good as their first two books. Maybe after listening to their podcast since episode 1, I had too high a bar set for it. Still funny and amusing though. ( )

First I haven't read the first two Freakeconomic books, I discovered the authors of Freakonomics listening to their podcast. I listen to this book through Audible, so it was a lot like listen to a series of their podcast episodes. The book was good and it made me think at points, although I do think that at times they over simplified issues. I do recommend this book, but just be aware you may find yourself shaking your head know as you read it. ( )

I was disappointed in this one because I'm a big fan of the podcast and had essentially already heard about 90% of the material presented in the book across various podcast episodes. Had I not already heard all of the case studies they discuss--I mean that literally, these are practically podcast episode transcripts strung together--I suspect I would have found a lot of value here. As it was, it was old hat. ( )

This is at the intersection of two kinds of books I like: economics and "how to think about problems" (which arguably is what economics is...). Well presented, good examples. Works great as an audiobook since the author is a professional podcaster. ( )
