From one of the world's most highly regarded social scientists comes a seminal book on forecasting that shows, for the first time, how we can all get better at making predictions. In Superforecasting, Tetlock and coauthor Dan Gardner offer a masterwork on prediction, drawing on decades of research and the results of a massive, government-funded forecasting tournament. The Good Judgment Project involves tens of thousands of ordinary people--including a Brooklyn filmmaker, a retired pipe installer, and a former ballroom dancer--who set out to forecast global events. Some of the volunteers have turned out to be astonishingly good. They've beaten other benchmarks, competitors, and prediction markets. They've even beaten the collective judgment of intelligence analysts with access to classified information. They are "superforecasters." The authors show us how we can learn from this elite group. Weaving together stories of forecasting successes (the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound) and failures (the Bay of Pigs) and interviews with a range of high-level decision makers, from David Petraeus to Robert Rubin, they show that good forecasting doesn't require powerful computers or arcane methods. It involves gathering evidence from a variety of sources, learning to think probabilistically, working in teams, keeping score, and being willing to admit error and change course. Superforecasting offers the first demonstrably effective way to improve our ability to predict the future--whether in business, finance, politics, international affairs, or daily life--and is destined to become a modern classic.
The New York Times best-selling Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation, selling over four million copies in thirty-five languages and changing the way we look at the world. Now, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner return with SuperFreakonomics, and fans and newcomers alike will find that the freakquel is even bolder, funnier, and more surprising than the first. Four years in the making, SuperFreakonomics asks not only the tough questions, but the unexpected ones: What's more dangerous, driving drunk or walking drunk? Why is chemotherapy prescribed so often if it's so ineffective? Can a sex change boost your salary? SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa? Why are doctors so bad at washing their hands? How much good do car seats do? What's the best way to catch a terrorist? Did TV cause a rise in crime? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Are people hard-wired for altruism or selfishness? Can eating kangaroo save the planet? Which adds more value: a pimp or a Realtor? Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else, whether investigating a solution to global warming or explaining why the price of oral sex has fallen so drastically. By examining how people respond to incentives, they show the world for what it really is - good, bad, ugly, and, in the final analysis, super freaky. Freakonomics has been imitated many times over - but only now, with SuperFreakonomics, has it met its match.
An action-packed quartet from the bestselling author of the Wingman series featuring the Superhawks, an ultrasecret team of patriotic US military specialists who declare war against every terrorist connected to the attacks of 9/11 Assembled by a mysterious superspy and operating without the political or bureaucratic oversight that can hamstring even the bravest fighting forces, the Superhawks are America's ruthless answer to the horrifying post-9/11 reality. An ultraelite force operating on the edges, they are the world's best sharpshooters, spies, demolition men, pilots, brawlers, and soldiers--and they all have a personal impetus for revenge. In Strike Force Alpha, the Superhawks' mission is to kill Osama bin Laden, but they wind up saving the world. Hidden aboard the Ocean Voyager, this elite unit of assault troops carries out brazen, daring raids all over the Persian Gulf as it seeks its number 1 target: al-Qaeda's master mission planner. Strike Force Bravo begins with the Superhawks taking on a bin-Laden-linked terrorist cell that's captured Singapore's Tonka Tower Hotel, one of the world's tallest skyscrapers. But al-Qaeda is hatching a new plot involving Stinger missiles. Can the Superhawks stop it in time? Or will the sprawling American military bureaucracy trip itself up before they even have a chance to try? In Strike Force Charlie, dozens of al-Qaeda terrorists preparing to unleash a series of attacks from the heart of America sneak into the United States under paper-thin disguises. The Superhawks team up with a group of civilians to protect the country, save thousands of lives, and purge the government of high-level traitors who threaten the freedoms we hold most dear. In Strike Force Delta, a supersquad from America's premier special ops unit, Delta Force, comes under attack in West Africa. Though they take out over 50 terrorists, the secret Delta Thunder team is captured. It's up to the Superhawks to invade the radicals' fortress, save the unit's men, and flatline the "crown prince" of terrorism before he can execute the hostages on live TV.
A suicidal terrorist cell threatens to detonate explosives in a Singapore skyscraper taking thousands of innocent American lives. No demands. Just sheer massive destruction-televised as it happens across the globe. As quickly as the terror unfolds, it's stopped dead-by the Superhawks, a crack team of patriotic warriors who live and breathe American vengeance. Their next step is getting the man behind the aborted attack-one of the most elusive terrorists in the world. Abdul Kazeel, supermook to Al Qaeda, has escaped their wrath before. Sequestered in a Filipino compound his new mission is to create a fanatical terrorist army. His planned attack on American soil is unthinkable, hyper-violent, and underway: blowing up more than a dozen airliners with stolen missile launchers. As the potential for disaster grows stronger by the second, the Superhawks are moving in to bring their own brand of chaos to the monster who invented the word.
The scheme was insanely brilliant: teams of Al Qaeda operatives sneaking their way onto American soil under every conceivable disguise, and by any deadly means possible. The collaboration is unfathomable: emissaries in the upper-echelon of our own Government are aiding them. The potential for terror is overwhelming: a cache of deadly weapons smuggled into the country at their disposal-and positioned for firing on the Fourth of July. Burned by their own government, the Superhawks have escaped imprisonment and are vowing to take on the mission themselves-locate the weapons, hunt down Al Qaeda's men, and let loose the righteous vengeance they've earned. Using deep intelligence from super-spy Bobby Murphy, the hit squad has joined forces with the New Underground-a citizens band of all-Americans ready to stand up and fight. Time is running out. The mega-attack is at hand. But so are the Superhawks.
Call it Murphy's Law....Bobby Murphy, the diminutive Texan who has worked in some of the most clandestine U.S. strike forces ever designed and has poured his cunning, knowledge and fury into a force of his own: 36 personally motivated, elite rogue warriors aboard a rusty container ship filled with the most cutting edge high-tech weapons in the world. Now Murphy's team is heading to West Africa to liberate a special Delta Force squad being held hostage by Al Qaeda...Murphy's team knows that if things go wrong, no one is coming to their rescue. But when they pull off an astounding operation, it's just the beginning of the fight. Because one of their own has come face to face with a crown prince of Al Qaeda--and with one stunning blow has opened up the door to an all-out, Superhawks invasion of the capitol of the terrorist world...... THE SUPERHAWKS HAVE ARRIVED.

"It is a meditation on Chicago's old soul . . . a witty, seductive, live-wire and greatly entertaining dark comedy that you just don't want to end." -Chicago Tribune"The sting, the speed and marksmanship of the gimcracks his characters fire at each other . . . drips the kind of soulful, energized sarcasm that has long characterized [Letts'] work as an actor and playwright."-Time Out Chicago Tracy Letts, who won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for his epic, caustic Oklahoma family drama August: Osage County, has shifted gears with this entertaining comedy set in a donut shop. A love letter to the city where he has lived for more than twenty years, Letts describes his new work as "an exploration of the Chicago storefront experience." The play takes place in the north side neighborhood of Uptown, where Arthur Przybyszewski runs the donut shop that has been in his family for sixty years. More content to spend the day smoking weed and reminiscing about his Polish immigrant father, Arthur hires a shop assistant, the young African American Franco Wicks, who has both an unpublished novel and unpaid gambling debt. Superior Donuts premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre Company and recently opened on Broadway--following the same path of success as Letts' previous work.Tracy Letts is the author of Killer Joe, Bug, Man from Nebraska (nominated for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize), and August: Osage County (awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama). He is a member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
