Good stuff

This is a fun little introduction to combinatorics. The example problems are thoroughly explained. Would like to see more urn problems. Good, but would pay more for a couple more examples. Liked the writing style, and link to blog and code for example.

Well informed...

It covers in great detail everything you will need to know to be successful. I've seen study guides that provide a much broader, more general coverage, which may be OK for some people, but the thing about this book is that you can keep your studying broad or you can choose to go in deep, depending on your needs. I also like that it's not just about memorizing, but also about strategy and the practice questions are great. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed this book

I got a lots of things of this book like a big picture view of counting problems, exploring combinations, solve more difficult mixed problems, solve more complex poker problems ! Understanding the permutations and combination is vital in making decisions. As probability theory requires that we count the number of ways in which a particular event can happen. And it has been proven that In intelligent gambling, permutations and combinations can be used to determine if you’re going to win or not.

FOUR STARS...

Starting with basics of counting arithmetic and build on top the concepts of permutation , combination , discrete & continuous probability in very easy to understand methods of explanation. He keeps pushing throughout the text not to memorize and try to understand the concept

Just started listening to this audiobook and I'm very excited to start learning. I purchased another book in the past that I did not like. The information was very hard and I just lost interest.This book seems to focus on simple information.
