SuperFreakonomics Tour Info, Etc.

For a few years now, this blog has included a link whereby readers could sign up for an e-mail newsletter. Many of you did so but for whatever reason we never actually sent out anything. If we had something to say, we’d just say it here on the blog. But now with a new book finally about to be published here and in the U.K. (and other English-speaking nations), we have fired up the e-mail list. The first missive went out last week. If you wanted it and got it, do nothing. If you got it and didn’t want it, you may unsubscribe and our feelings won’t be hurt. If you didn’t get it and want it, sign up here.

In the meantime, here are a couple of British articles about the new book; and below is a schedule of upcoming articles, appearances, etc. (Some of the lectures include both of us, and some just one; check the links for details.) If you happen to make it to one of the live events, please be sure to come up and say hello.

Have y'all thought about playing DC sometime when you're not opposite a MNF Divisional game?


I don't suppose you'd consider a stop north of the border? Say, Ottawa or Toronto?

Dana Haydock

No North Carolina? Have you foresaken your App State roots? Come on down; we'd love to come hear you speak in Charlotte!

Aaron Huertas

I loved the first book!

Now please respond to scientific criticisms of the second:



Toronto! Toronto! Toronto! Toronto!

I would pay. Please come to Toronto. If there's a q &a, I'll ask a question, and introduce myself as "the guy who said Toronto four times in the top of his comment protesting for you to come."


Australia calling!

Stephen - we'd love to see you guys launch the book down here is Aus.
