Book Review: "Think Like a Freak"

   Think Like a Freak
   Steven D. Levitt and 
   Stephen J. Dubner

When I read the first Freakonomics book nine years ago, no one was more surprised than me by how much I liked it.  Author Steven Levitt is an economics professor at the University of Chicago, and in Freakonomics, he explores seeming unrelated topics and the relationships they have.  For example, he examines what schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common.

Levitt and Dubner’s second book, Super Freakonomics, is more of the same (and still fascinating reading).  In their third collaboration, Think Like a Freak, they teach the reader their problem solving techniques, while still providing interesting case studies.

If you are interested in human nature and in figuring out how things work, Think Like a Freak is the book for you!
