SuperFreakonomics Paperback Drops Next Week

Next Tuesday, May 24, SuperFreakonomics will finally be published in paperback in the U.S. It has already sold more than half a million copies in hardcover in the U.S. (with more than 1 million sold worldwide), and the Illustrated Edition has gone bananas too. The paperback cover, as you can see here, is not much of a departure from the hardcover.

The book itself has some key additions: a 16-page color insert with illustrations, photos, etc. from the Illustrated Edition; an author Q&A (which you helped write); a transcript of the first Freakonomics Radio podcast (“The Dangers of Safety”); and a pair of essays by Levitt and Dubner about what their fathers taught them.

We should probably give away a bunch of copies of the new edition, yes? What’s the best way to do so?

How should we give away copies of the new SuperFreakonomics paperback edition?

    I do get high on the idea of random assignment. You could ask these people after 1 year what happened to the book, just so, and compare it to a control group;-)

    I voted “Randomly”. However, I do really like the idea that it should be given to persons who’ve taken the time to comment on this post!

    Hi Guys!

    Any chance of this becoming available on e-Readers? I have a Nook and I’d love to get my hands on a copy!

    I think you should give one to young economics students who are trying to get in the practice of looking at the world in a different way… i.e. myself…

    Ask us questions that require tricks and fun and smarts. Make us earn the books through our own streaks of freakonomics :)
