The Best of Freakonomics

Steven D. Levitt

Why don’t flight attendants get tipped? Why are high gas prices better? How safe is your job? And why does KFC always run out of fried chicken? Dazzling audiences around the world with their wry and unconventional insights, Freakonomics authors Steve Levitt and Stephen Dubner offer data-based stories of things that actually influence human behavior, and demonstrate which incentives work, which ones don’t—and why.
