Stephen Dubner of Freakonomics

"Freakonomics" co-author Stephen Dubner returned to my show today to talk about the new book he's written with Steven Levitt, "When To Rob A Bank."

We started by discussing how bad people are at risk assessment, too often making bad decisions because we're afraid, and how politicians exploit that fear to manipulate us. Then we moved on to why we should stop believing that "winners never quit and quitters never win." And finally, I asked him if there's any evidence to support the notion of home field advantage.
