Australian tour dates

In late February I am visiting Singapore, Australia and New Zealand to talk about “The Logic of Life”. Here are some of the Australian events. Further details to follow as I have them:

PERTH Friday 22 February

3.30pm FESTIVAL EVENT: Perth Writer’s Festival

Spotlight on Tim Harford

The author of The Undercover Economist, Tim Harford, discusses his new book The Logic of Life in which he sets out to prove that life’s craziest episodes – love and divorce, drugs and gambling, even racism or office politics – can be explained by looking at how we respond rationally to what is happening around us.
