Title: SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance (PagePerfect NOOK Book)

<p>The <b>New York Times</b> bestselling <b>Freakonomics</b> was a worldwide sensation. Now, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with <b>SuperFreakonomics</b>, and fans and newcomers alike will find that the "freakquel" is even bolder, funnier, and more surprising than the first.</p> <p><b>SuperFreakonomics</b> challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department store Santa? Who adds more value: a pimp or a Realtor? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Did TV cause a rise in crime? Can eating kangaroo meat save the planet?</p> <p>Whether investigating a solution to global warming or explaining why the price of oral sex has fallen so drastically, Levitt and Dubner show the world for what it really is—good, bad, ugly, and, in the final analysis, superfreaky.</p>

Title: Think like a Freak

Alltagsprobleme haben oft ganz andere Ursachen als gemeinhin vermutet. Und deshalb muss man, um sie wirklich zu lösen, einen überraschenden Weg einschlagen. Mit dieser Erkenntnis aus ihrem Bestseller Freakonomics haben Levitt und Dubner weltweit Aufsehen erregt. In diesem Buch führen sie alles, was sie an ihren Fallgeschichten gelernt haben, zu einem praktischen Toolkit zusammen. Das Denken-wie-ein-Freak bewährt sich überall: wenn Sie die eigenen Talente (oder Defizite) optimal in beruflichen Erfolg umsetzen, die Schulleistungen Ihrer Kinder nachhaltig verbessern und auch noch, wenn Sie Ihre Kinder dazu bringen wollen, Sie später im Alter im Pflegeheim zu besuchen. Think Like a Freak ist wieder ein unterhaltsames Feuerwerk brillanter Ideen. Diesmal aber mit unmittelbarem Praxisnutzen.
