Detailed Description


By Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

Argues that many apparent mysteries of everyday life don't need to be so mysterious: they could be illuminated and made even more fascinating by asking the right questions and drawing connections. Focuses attention on intimate real-world issues untouched by most economists, such as whether reading to your baby will make her a better student.

Traces the drop in violent crime rates to a drop in violent criminals and, digging further, to the Roe v. Wade decision that preempted the existence of some people who would be born to poverty and hardship. Includes many startling observations and challenges to conventional wisdom. Deconstructs everything from the organizational structure of drug-dealing gangs to baby-naming patterns.

242 pages. Hardcover. 2005.
