About the Book

Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner single-handedly showed the world that applying economic theory and big data to everyday problems can bear surprising results. Think Like A Freak will take students further inside their special thought process, revealing a new way of approaching the decisions we make, the plans we create, and the morals we choose. It answers the question on the lips of everyone who's read the previous books: How can I apply these ideas to my life? How do I make smarter, better decisions? How can I truly think like a freak? With short, highly entertaining insights running the gamut from "The Upside of Quitting" to "How to Succeed--With No Talent," Think Like A Freak will radically alter the way your students think about all aspects of life on this planet.
