Book Review: Think Like a Freak (Freakonomics #3) by Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

I was curious what this book is about, and what it might be to think like a freak. Unfortunately, I knew most of the stories or they were ordinary. I liked them, but they were not what I expected.

The story about Takeru Kobayashi is the only one about real life freak and how he thinks, this one was great.

Most of the ideas were about overcoming cognitive biases and using data to make decisions. Thinking small and having fun are important to keep you motivated.

All in all it was my first audiobook - I have enjoyed listening to it - unfortunately it ended too soon - it's really short one.
