Summary
Why is it that incredibly unlikely phenomena actually happen quite regularly and why should we, in fact, expect such things to happen? In this book - aimed squarely at anyone with an interest in coincidences, probability or gambling - eminent statistician David Hand answers this question by weaving together various strands of probability into a unified explanation, which he calls the improbability principle
