Editorial Reviews

Review

The Book of Odds is filled with good news (you have a relatively good chance of experiencing love at first sight), mixed news (you are less likely to be killed by a co-worker than by a sibling), and bad news (don’t even ask). (Barnes & Noble, Editor's Recommendation)

The Book of Odds…shows the surprising probabilities governing everyday life, including how your sex life stacks up. (Salon.com)

An enticing read from cover to cover, the odds are great that you will enjoy this book. (Library Journal)
