Description

Randomness, uncertainty and probability are everywhere, and while no one can predict uncertain events with certainty, we can at least understand uncertainty itself. In this entertaining look at the world of probabilities, Jeffrey Rosenthal explains the mechanics of randomness and teaches us how to develop an informed perspective on probability. From lotteries to casinos, insurance rates to crime, game shows to airline crashes, cancer to SARS, Struck by Lightning deconstructs the odds and oddities of chance in an understandable, relevant and irreverent exploration.
