"Like Freakonomics, but better...you are guaranteed a good time" Financial Times
SUPERFREAKONOMICS LIVE ON TOUR! A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR FOUR NIGHTS ONLY
"A humdinger of a book: page-turning, politically incorrect and ever-so-slightly intoxicating, like a large swig of tequila" The Times
In this world-first, Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics & Superfreakonomics will be bringing the intriguing world of Freakonomics to the stage in four special nights in Birmingham (20 June), Liverpool (21 June), Brighton (22 June) & Cambridge (24 June).
"Great Fun ... SUPERFREAKONOMICS travels further than its predecessor" The Sunday Times
SUPERFREAKONOMICS LIVE! mixes super smart thinking with great storytelling, whether investigating a sure-fire way to catch a terrorist, or explaining why the price of oral sex has fallen so drastically. By examining how people respond to incentives, Stephen Dubner shows the world for what it really is - good, bad, ugly, and, in the final analysis, super-freaky.
"There's material here not just for one conversation, but for several. The authors mash together interesting academic research, surprising historical comparisons … and cute factoids" Daily Mail
First published in 2005, The New York Times best-selling Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation, selling over four million copies in thirty-five languages. In their new international bestseller, SuperFreakonomics, fans and newcomers alike will find that the freakquel is even bolder, funnier, and more surprising than the first.
"Levitt and Dubner's zeal for statistical anomalies is as undimmed as their eye for a good story … just lie back and let Levitt and Dubner's bouncy prose style carry you along from one peculiarity to the next" The Sunday Telegraph
SuperFreakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner is published in paperback by Penguin on 24 May 2010 (priced £9.99). Dubner will be signing copies after the shows.
