SuperFreakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

SuperFreakonomics is Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner's successor to their wildly successful, Freakonomics. It's more of the same formula, digging through mounds of data to unearth surprising conclusions. Data from Chicago prostitutes shows how and when they make more money, and why they're rarely ever arrested. The authors examine whether it's riskier to drive home drunk or attempt to walk that way. They report on attempts to profile terrorists by examining their bank transactions and whether or not they buy life insurance. They explore the controversy surrounding global warming and research ideas to solve the problem by transforming the environment. SuperFreakonomics has received mostly positive reviews with The Telegraph saying, "Essentially, SuperFreakonomics consists of more of the same. This might get wearying were it not for the fact that Levitt and Dubner's zeal for statistical anomalies is as undimmed as their eye for a good story."
