Whether you want to solve a small personal problem or a large-scale global one, Levitt and Dubner’s Think Like a Freak will show you how to look at it from a different perspective.

Turning to magic, they explain why adults are easier to fool than children. Surprised by this?


PERSPECTIVE / THINK LIKE A FREAK

“Don’t listen to what people say; watch what they do.”


Adults have developed a sense of expectations and assumptions about the way the world works, which can be easily exploited. Kids, on the other hand, don’t know enough about the world for that to happen. They’re curious, their attention wanders and they notice tricks more easily.

Levitt and Dubner want to teach us to think like kids again, to see past our assumptions and expectations to find new, surprising solutions. It’s a new way of dealing with whatever problems we’ll encounter.
