    Today, number crunching affects your life in ways you might never imagine. In this lively and groundbreaking new audiobook, economist Ian Ayres shows how today's best and brightest organizations are analyzing massive databases at lightening speed to provide greater insights into human behavior. They are the Super Crunchers.

  • Freakonomics: Revised Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 55 mins)

    Story

    Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

    "Economic hit men," John Perkins writes, "are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder."

    i didn't want to read something too political or depressing, but people kept telling me how good this book was. they were right. eye-opening and a good adventure story. there is nothing depressing about a little clarity on what makes the world's gears move. nothing you don't already know. just simple answers as to why.

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    this was one of the first audible books i listened to. i was addicted. would sit in my car in my driveway waiting for chapters to end. since then i've come to realize this was an exceptional book. had to go back and take time to rate it. well written, well read, unique point of view on things that affect everyone. it is my civic duty to recommend the good ones. (please do the same.)
