Title:  Think Like a Freak: The Authors of Freakonomics Offer to Retrain Your Brain

Author:  Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubne

“Think like a Freak” challenges one’s current view of the world and shows how to approach life in a more creative way. This book addresses a few issues such as: how the three hardest words in the English language are “I don’t know” and how it should be okay to say these words, they share the story of Kobayashi, the guy who has won the Nathans hot dog eating contest held on July 4th, and how he became a professional food eater, “Nigerian scammers” who send email’s to millions of people throughout the world, and a few other stories that I found very interesting. I mostly enjoyed the author’s view of these situations. I highly recommend this book.
