Improbable book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. From a brilliant new talent comes a riveting novel of chance, fate, and /5. "Improbable" is the story of David Caine who, as a poker playing, epileptic slacker, is hardly the typical pop fiction hero.

But Caine is also a sometimes-professor of probability theory, which frames a refreshing unique tale that spans weighty topics ranging from Einstein's Theory of relativity to the writings of French mathematician LaPlace /5(82).

"Climbing Mount Improbable" is more or less a sequel to Dawkins' book "The Blind Watchmaker," with additional detail. Although "Climbing Mount Improbable" is good, if you can read only one of the two books, I would suggest "The Blind Watchmaker." The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without DesignCited by: The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable is a book by author and former options trader Nassim Nicholas book focuses on the extreme impact of rare and unpredictable outlier events — and the human tendency to find simplistic explanations for these events, retrospectively.

Taleb calls this the Black Swan theory. The book covers subjects Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb. The subtitle of this book is "The Improbable Life of Paul Erdos"; it could as well be "an improbable topic for a picture book". So how does Deborah Heiligman manage to pull it off.

This author of the awards-winning "Charles and Emma" has a unique talent for presenting biography, to all ages/5. Una heroína improbable E-book. Level 1/2 – Past tense Anabel’s thirteenth birthday brings her many surprises a special message from her grandmother, a long-awaited opportunity to talk with Gabriel, her handsome heartthrob, and a terrible secret that not only threatens to ruin her chances with Gabriel, but also her REPUTATION.

WTF research rides again in this second installment on improbable science. Because this book is so similar in style, etc., as the prior one, my review of “This is Improbable”, applies to this one as well.

So, I have included it below, with /5(11). This Is Improbable Too Shop the Improbable Research® store. Get books about improbable research and the Ig Nobel Prize. The Magazine: Annals of Improbable Research. We invented an e-book form that solved a problem that plagued most of the e-book industry.
