Today Only: Cheap Tix to Hear "Freakonomics" Author From Groupon and Temple Israel

This is a Guest Post by a Member of Temple Israel. [Eds. Note: the $15 Groupon tickets deal was extended until Wednesday or until all tickets run out.]

The act of questioning is central to Judaism and few are as masterful at asking questions than Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the bestsellers, Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics. His books bring new perspective to how we view the world and challenge everything…e.g., can eating kangaroo save the planet? (anyone want to volunteer for that one…?!)
Did you know that the month you were born or the name you have might contribute to your success? And are capuchin monkeys statistically indistinguishable from most stock-market investors? How about this one: who adds more value, a pimp or a realtor?
Dubner, who also penned Choosing My Religion: A Memoir of a Family Beyond Belief, is coming to Temple Israel in Minneapolis – it’s a chance to see him live.
The event is Saturday, October 23 at 8 p.m. General admission tickets are $36, and will be offered for just $15 on today, Mon Oct. 18.
Buy tickets at and “like” it on the Facebook page “Freakonomics Comes to Minneapolis.”

Eds Note: Freakonomics the movie is now in theaters, so for those of you who prefer to get a taste of a book through its trailer, here ya go.
