An award-winning author, journalist, and radio and TV personality, Stephen J. Dubner is co-author of the international bestsellers Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics, which have sold more than 5 million copies in 35 languages. Originally published in the U.S. in 2005, Freakonomics instantly became an international best-seller and a cultural phenomenon. SuperFreakonomics, published in 2009, was published to similar acclaim, and also became an international best-seller. His third book, Think Like A Freak, is set to be published on May 13, 2014, and takes Freakonomics ideas to the next level.
The Freakonomics enterprise also includes an award-winning blog, a high-profile documentary film, and a public-radio project called Freakonomics Radio, which Dubner hosts. He has also appeared widely on television, including a three-year stint on ABC News as a Freakonomics contributor. His journalism has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, TIME, and elsewhere, and has been anthologized in The Best American Sports Writing, The Best American Crime Writing, and others. He was an editor and writer at New York magazine and The New York Times before writing books full time.
