Born on Friday the Thirteenth: The Curious World of Probabilities
From the randomness of romance to why you get invited to three parties on the same night, Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, professor of statistics at the University of Toronto, will explain the concepts—and entertain you with numbers.
Did it ever occur to you that you might actually have 250,000 friends of friends or what that could mean for your social life? Or that if you play the lottery every week, you will hit the jackpot about once every 250,000 years?
