Chance by Amir D. Azcel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Chance is an accessible study of Probability, Randomness, Coincidences, Uncertainty and Games. Mathematician Amir D Aczel leads you through simple explanations of each of these forces in life, and explains how you can use your new-found knowledge of these mathematical paradoxes to succeed (or at least have the best CHANCE of succeeding) in gambling, poker, love, who will win the next election and how to choose a housemate or puppy. Each of the chapters is short, self-contained and simple so readers can drop in and out, look up a problem or a theory and then go ahead and use it. For all the maths nerds, gamblers and curious people in your life.
