We live in the information age, the decade of "big data." With every fact available at the push of a button, it can be hard to whittle down to what’s really important, and to make rational decisions based on the facts that truly matter.

In his new book, "Think Like a Freak," Stephen Dubner, host of the Freakonomics podcast on WNYC, breaks down the decision-making process. With his longtime co-author, economist Steven Levitt, Dubner explains why it’s often important to admit defeat, and why "I don't know" is key to rational decision-making.
