This was good, but worse than the first. I didn't like a lot of the sections (some of them were entirely not illuminating). The section on Global Cooling, surprisingly, was the best part. I'm not sure if it was true, but it's comforting to know that there are a significant number of ways that are being considered away from the public eye for solving our greenhouse gas issues.

Overall, worth reading, but don't expect anything better than the original Freakonomics ( )

right wing propaganda on methane pollution and global warming. I might not be too disgusted to persist through the last chapter in case they say: kidding! ( )

When a library patron told me he liked this volume even better than the first one, I was intrigued. I read it on the bus, and indeed, it was fascinating way to pass time. But since I'm no longer taking the bus, and therefore no longer need to pass time, I don't feel like I need to spend the time to finish this book. I'm having trouble seeing the relevancy to the big picture. It's kind of like the short stories of non-fiction, except that I like short stories. ( )

Just didn't dig this one like I did the first. ( )

The phrase thinking outside the box gets used a lot these days. But these two guys really take this phrase to the extreme. They see things in such a different, fascinating, and often humorous way that it's an absolute pleasure to read their stuff. In fact, the most disappointing thing about this book is thats it's way too short. Only 216 pages. C'mon guys your fans waited years for this follow up, and this is all you could come up with ? ( )

Levitt and co-author Stephen Dubner's new book "Super Freakonomics" is a follow-up to their super smash 2005 bestseller, "Freakonomics." Thank goodness they are back -- with wisdom, wit and, most of all, powerful economic insight.
 
If ever two writers were likely to suffer from "difficult second book" syndrome, it's Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, authors of the smash-hit Freakonomics, which made them the rock stars of the economics world.

The economist and the journalist again attack the concept of the rational man, via studies involving monkeys, banking records, and doctors. Yet there’s an artfulness missing this time around in their circuitous paths toward obvious conclusions like “technology isn’t always better” and “men and women are different.”
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerThe A. V. Club, Ellen Wernecke (Oct 24, 2009)
 
The difficulty with the book is that while the focus may be fairly fuzzy to begin with, it gets a lot fuzzier as it goes on. There’s a long passage about how people behave differently when they’re being scrutinised – thus making a nonsense of most behavioural experiments – and an even longer one about global warming.
