Not a perfect book, but as usual very interesting and well thought out. Though many people will have problems with some of the statements, they came across as mostly scientific.
Enjoy the fact that they make interesting connections, interesting thoughts and most importantly the fact that it helps remind people that data matters.
That people often argue from a position of energy and enthusiasm, but they turn their brains off. The books help remind you to stop doing that and think. And that's neve Not a perfect book, but as usual very interesting and well thought out. And that's never a bad thing. Nov 12, Fahasa rated it really liked it. Freakonomics lived on the New York Times bestseller list for an astonishing two years.
Now authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with more iconoclastic insights and observations in SuperFreakonomics -the long awaited follow-up to their New York Times Notable blockbuster.
B ased on revolutionary research and original studies SuperFreakonomics promises to once again challenge our view of the way the world really works. Jul 29, Kurt rated it really liked it. Levitt artfully and consistently threads the difference between correlation and causality, especially in the context of parenting and socioeconomic challenges, throughout his discussion.
Although he declares no theme to his book, it is certainly an enlightening presentation. Nov 30, Lee Dorsey rated it it was amazing. Nov 20, Justin Armstrong rated it liked it. Good accessible book, very solid for those interested in getting into modern economics. Jun 02, Magda Perri rated it really liked it. Great follow up to the original, really opens up your eyes to new perspectives.
Dec 01, Mark Dempsey rated it liked it. Best bits from the blog, compiled. Jul 18, Marushat Sonan rated it it was amazing. More entertaining than most fictions. If you want to get into economics and don't know where to start, read this. It's pretty damn good. Mar 27, Kimberly Sanscartier rated it it was amazing. I thought it would be difficult to top the first book but somehow they did.
Superfreakomics is just as great a read as its predecessor. Apr 14, Astrida Fitri rated it it was ok. Very assumptive and overgeneralizing in some parts, especially regarding terrorism. Enjoyable in terms of narrative.
Mar 25, Reinis Karolis rated it it was ok. Still interesting, but the part I was much much better! Jan 05, Rafael rated it it was amazing Shelves: filosofia.
El segundo. Apr 01, Aidan rated it it was amazing. Always enjoy looking at unconventional situations from an economic perspective.
Jan 06, Kelli rated it it was amazing. Dynamic, interesting, challenging, and sometimes uncomfortable, this book challenges how you perceive human interactions and motivations. Sep 22, Mohammad Ali Abedi rated it liked it. I never felt like I was actually reading a book. He then compared them with men from the same age bracket in the general populace of Lebanon.
The terrorists, he found, were less likely to come from a poor family 28 percent versus 33 percent and more likely to have at least a high-school education 47 percent versus 38 percent.
Hezbollah is a local group, more concerned with local issues, so to take a sample size of Hezbollah group does not mean the analysis done on the data has anything to be said on ISIS or Al Qaeda. It was these sort of analyses that made me realize more that, while working with data is interesting, one has to be very careful with how one interoperates the work done on it.
Jul 31, Jeni Enjaian rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-in , read-as-audiobook , non-fiction. I really enjoyed this book as I knew I would. I enjoyed the first book and the podcasts so I looked forward to this book. It definitely did not disappoint. The author I forget which one narrated and did an excellent job. If you're looking for a well-written amalgamation of historical and contemporary facts and anecdotes all related in one form or another to economics, this is the book for you. I highly recommend this book.
Aug 25, Booth Babcock rated it really liked it. I admit it, I'm a sucker for pop economics. If I was a sociology professor I'd teach a sociology of economics course and it would be the kind of stuff in this book. Fun, breezy, interesting enough to provoke thought but light enough to be good vacation reading. Mar 17, Bernardo Vailati rated it really liked it. Jul 26, William rated it really liked it Shelves: portuguese.
Funny, unexpected and gave me another variable to think when making user experiments on Lean Startups.
