Review From the reviews: "This book gives a delightful overview of Probability, that is Chance, as a phenomenon in both games and life. … I found this book to be filled with example that I will use in class the next time I teach Probability. … The author keeps the mathematical prerequisites to a minimum, so that this book would be accessible to an undergraduate … . I would consider using it as a text for a student who wanted to do an independent study of probability theory." (Barbara E. Reynolds, MathDL, July, 2008) "This book on chance is a translation of the 2006 Portuguese original. … it may be read by almost anybody who is interested in the subject of chance." (A. N. Philippou, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 a) From the Back Cover With its many easy-to-follow mathematical examples, this book takes the reader on an almost chronological trip through the fascinating and amazing laws of chance, omnipresent in the natural world and in our daily lives. Along the route many fascinating topics are discussed, such as: challenging probability paradoxes; "paranormal" coincidences; game odds; causes and effects; interpretation of opinion polls; winning chances as a game proceeds; the nature of randomness; entropy and randomness; randomness in life; algorithmic complexity and the undecidability of randomness; possibilities and limitations of learning the laws of a Universe immersed in chance events. This charming book will inform and entertain the scientist and non-scientist alike.
