Synopsis

Assume nothing, question everything.

This is the message at the heart of Freakonomics, Levitt and Dubner's rule-breaking, iconoclastic book about crack dealers, cheating teachers and bizarre baby names that turned everyone's view of the world upside-down and became an international multi-million-copy-selling phenomenon.

'Prepare to be dazzled' Malcolm Gladwell

'A sensation ... you'll be stimulated, provoked and entertained. Of how many books can that be said?' Sunday Telegraph

'Has you chuckling one minute and gasping in amazement the next' Wall Street Journal

'Dazzling ... a delight' Economist

'Made me laugh out loud' Scotland on Sunday

Penguin Books

Penguin Books

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
