Predictive Dreams. Parapsychology and ESP. Stock Market Scams. Numerology. Gambling. Chance Encounters. Winners vs Losers.
All of these subjects and more are covered in this eye-opening book. John Allen Paulos shows us that these 'mysteries' are easily solved mathematically; their *absence* would need explaining.
Going deeper than statistics and probabilities, many common misconceptions are explained away using logic, mathematics and common-sense. Very intelligent, often humorous and always right-on-the-money, Paulos' style is unforgettable.
Should you get this book? If you're a free-thinker and like to challenge your mind, the odds are in your favor.
