CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This book is intended as a popular, but abbreviated treatise on probability
theory. Basic concepts and techniques are introduced and illustrated mainly by
drawing from a wealth of entertaining, paradoxical, and mind-boggling
probability problems (such as the birthday problem or the Monty Hall problem).
The writing style is purposefully enjoyable and mostly non-technical. The pace
is leisurely. No knowledge of calculus of previous knowledge of probability
theory or statistics is required. The emphasis is on entertainment and pedagogy
rather than applicability or usefulness. Examples reflect everyday occurrences,
not pre-fabricated or altered data. While honest in approach, the author takes
great pain to ease the level of mathematics throughout the work. Probability
theory is learned by and through example.
