Summary
Here, Robert Matthews uses real-life cases to demonstrate different facets of the laws of probability. He shows just how huge their reach can be and that understanding how they work can change our view of a host of everyday phenomena - as well as saving us a great deal of time, money and anxiety. Among other topics, he looks at: how to understand and even predict coincidences; when an insurance policy is worth having, and when it's just a rip-off; how to judge a health recommendation as worth following or just a scare; and when a scientific claim is a breakthrough or baloney
