Ok kids, this one’s hot off the presses this month! Think Like a Freak, by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner brings their trademark blend of captivating storytelling and unconventional analysis. It takes 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 life-hacks 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. (useful!)
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. Available on Amazon for $17.38 (hardcover) or as a Kindle edition ($14.99).
