Probability Theory Can Be Fun

The Sunday NYT BR reviewed Drunkard’s Walk and it shot to #12 on Amazon’s Best Seller list, (it’s also at #24 on the NYT extended nonfiction list).

The reviewer calls it “a readable crash course in randomness and statistics…[the author] writes in a breezy style, interspersing probabilistic mind-benders with portraits of theorists” and goes on to make it sound fascinating, even fun.

The libraries that bought did so lightly and holds to copy ratios are high.
