Who Wants a Free Copy of New SuperFreakonomics Paperback?

The paperback is published in the U.S. today. Here’s what the cover looks like.

You can buy it on Amazon (and elsewhere).

There is a Facebook quiz forthcoming.

It includes lots of bonus material.

And just for kicks, we’ll give away five copies right here and now. Earlier, we asked your preferred method of giveaway and your strong preference was “random.” So why don’t we do things the way radio stations used to give away free records (maybe they still do this?) — you know, “The 28th caller will receive …” All you have to do is post a comment below. We’ll pick five comments from the lot, including the numbers represented by:

1. Steve Levitt’s age
2. Our publisher’s street address
3. The uniform number of my all-time favorite football player
4. The suicide rate (per 100,000) in Hungary
5. The episode number of our “Power of Poop” podcast

Good luck!

See the list of winners here.

Keep up the good work. Thanks for the fun, random give away. YOU GUYS RULE!


I'm thinking two doesn't really cover any of those items, but here goes nothing!


Hmmmm... hoping my comment matches either the suicide rate in Hungary or the Power of Poop podcast. Regardless, I would also love a copy of the book.


Loved Freakonomics... I'm sure this one's even better!

Could have been Patriotic suicide bombers should buy life insurance?

Hello from Québec!
Allez, un exemplaire à une lectrice francophone, ce serait gentil!
