Now just to give you some context here, I read Freakonomics, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner's first book, cover-to-cover marveling at the connections between school teachers and sumo wrestlers, and the Ku Klux Klan and real estate agents. These pair of rogue economists really broke down the hidden side to everything. So, of course they blew up. They started a New York Times blog and they got tons of emails. They're back for part two, Superfreakonomics, which takes the whole study economic trends to the next level. Now these guys are talking about global cooling, patriotic prostitutes, and why suicide bombers should buy life insurance. I can't wait in dig in. October 20th, folks, save the date.
