For those of us without a two week vacation to devote to this tome, I would like to see a Clif's Notes version. Maybe 10,000 random numbers?
SPOILER ALERT: They just pretty much stay random the whole time, no plot twists or anything. I mean if you've seen one random number, you've seen them all. In a slap in the face of randomness, the very randomness of it got repetitive after a few pages. Save yourself the time, and if you need a random number, just sort of think of a random number in your head and write it down. Odds are its in the book already, and you saved yourself $80.
On the plus side, great comments. Please read my upcoming meta-pop-economics book, "Absurdity, Humor, and Metacommentary in Current Anonymous Internet Communication, A Case Study: Literary Criticism of the Amazon.com Comments Section for the Book 'A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates' by the Rand Corporation." Coming soon to Amazon.com.
