The Book of Chance - Your Guide to the Risks of Modern Living by John Hodgson

A reckoner of risk and guide to everyday living. Organized in easy-to-use categories such as "Sport", "The Mating Game", "Money Matters", "Sex", "Gambling" and "Childhood", it provides statistics which offer to settle arguments, amaze and terrify. For example: there are over 250,000 ideal partners for you out there; if you survive the first year of life, your chances of dying are never as great until you are over 55; the chances of a doctor getting the right diagnosis and acting on it are less than 20 per cent; and grown men do cry, but five times less frequently than grown women - British men, however, sob more than Israeli men. Although the book is designed to entertain, Hodgson gives his sources in small print at the end of the book.
