    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.

    Overall

    I took a course in Probability and Statistics last year and was happily reminded of many concepts and theories from the course with historical background and practical application to put them in context. The book isn't overly complex in my opinion, but I didn't really want to be thinking that hard while driving anyway. I also appreciated the author's value of hard work and determination to increase your odds of success instead of relying on so-called luck.

    Side note: The reader for this book was more interesting and varied than the one for Mlodinow's other book on Audible, "Euclid's Window"
