    Story
    (1427)

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    "Great book but this is just part 1"
    Overall

    Enjoyed this greatly. The Monty Hall example is worth the whole price of the book. I had a lot o f fun discussing this with friends and family. One thing though they don't tell you is that this is only part one of a two part series. I can't find part two at all in Audible. It does not show on the title until you download it and then abruptly at the end of this part.

    Most of us take for granted the features of our modern society, from air travel and telecommunications to literacy and obesity. Yet for nearly all of its six million years of existence, human society had none of these things. While the gulf that divides us from our primitive ancestors may seem unbridgeably wide, we can glimpse much of our former lifestyle in those largely traditional societies still or recently in existence.

    Would you try another book from Jared Diamond and/or Jay Snyder?

    Diamond spent much too much time on on things no one could be interested in or want to know. Started off fine but declined in to facts about a car wreck
