I had recently purchased a DVD set from the teaching company by Sean Carol and felt pretty content and that's the reason behind purchasing this book. No regrets here. Well written by Prof. Carol. I felt that the narration could have been better, but taking into consideration the material presented in the book it wasn't a big compromise to make. Overall a ***** i.e., a 5 STAR book.
This is a nice book and will give the reader a good perspective of what a Final theory needs to be.
I am a statistics student and at times felt Invincible because of all the tool at my disposal and this book told me about the ground reality and the actual story behind Odds. I still have an year's education left and I will take this into account before I think about the predictive ability of Statistics/Mathematics and their associated Models. This one along with Books like "The Black Swan", "Fooled BY randomness" have infact helped me to understand how randomness is in the real world -- it's worlds apart from what we study in books.
