Nice Biography but Devoid of Math Thrill,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Theory That Would Not Die: How Bayes' Rule Cracked the Enigma Code, Hunted Down Russian Submarines, and Emerged Triumphant from Two Centuries of Controversy (Hardcover)
The book is an interesting history of mathematicians and others who use math, but does not explain the thrill of how the theory actually was used to solve the problems presented. It is totally devoid of mathematics and does not convey the thrill of problem solving using the theorem. It does not explain how the theorem did any of the things stated in the title.
