This book was very helpful for my project in science class. It taught me how probability is used in our every day lives. It also taught me about physics and how potential and kinetic energy work. It was a great book and I learned a lot. (Matthew, L)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is great. As a physician, I counsel patients on risks and benefits of medical treatments everyday. I cannot tell you how many people worry about side effects less likely to occur than getting struck by lightening. I think this book should be required reading in all of our schools.
