How does one draw common qualities between sumo-wrestling and teaching in the USA? Well, Levitt can do it.
Here’s a TED video where Levitt talks about one of the many topics he covers in Freakonomics.
The book titled Freakonomics is the result of combining the brilliant creative vision of a left-brainer with the know-how of a fully trained economic analyst. If you ever want to develop a decent understanding of the world and its dynamics, you have to read this book. They have also published other books following this one. If you wish to read them all, I encourage you to do so, but at the very least, read one of them and understand the message behind it.
