From lotteries opinion polls and insurance policies to worries about murder rates, natural disasters and terrorism, probability plays a major part in our everyday lives - a part that is frequently and needlessly misunderstood. Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, a math professor and improvisational comedian, comes to the rescue with this irreverent, bestselling exploration of the odds and oddities of randomness. Looking at such familiar topics as poker hands, email spam, elections and game shows, Struck by Lightning elucidates and entertains. Chances are, you will never look at the world in the same way again.
