- Length: 7 hrs and 51 mins
Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing. In Freakonomics, they explore the hidden side of...well, everything. The inner working of a crack gang...the truth about real-estate agents...the secrets of the Klu Klux Klan. What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world is even more intriguing than we think. All it takes is a new way of looking, and Freakonomics will redefine the way we view the modern world.

Life is so fascinating!
This book makes life seem so fascinating and makes you think twice about the most mundane things, especially what you hear on the news. There are so many things like sumo wrestling and people's names that I wouldn't have thought twice about, but this book dives into them with such interest that I was hooked from almost the first page.
