If you’re in Times Square on Saturday, Dec. 19, keep an eye out for SuperFreakonomics on the Dow Jones news zipper. We’ll give a signed copy of the book to the first person who sends us a photo of the book’s name up in lights. Meanwhile, SuperFreakonomics has been chosen as one of the best business books of the year, and Popular Mechanics likes it as a best holiday gift idea. As of this writing, SuperFreakonomics is the No. 5 best-seller on, and remains the nation’s best-selling business book, as ranked by both the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Freakonomics, meanwhile, has been named one of best books of the 00’s by The Onion‘s A.V. Club, the Times (U.K.), and the Telegraph.
