Book review of Leonard Mlodinow's 'The Drunkard's Walk'. Reading this book is akin to visiting the Magic Kingdom with Mlodinow; he cranks up one ride after another as the reader wishes for the hoopla to never end. He judiciously employs his storytelling craft to unravel the progressive influence of probability over the centuries.
Book review of 'How to lie with Statistics', a book by Darrell Huff. H.G. Wells once remarked, "Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write." Wells' observation was rooted in the significance and the consequent prevalence that Statistics and its offshoots had started to gain in the early nineteenth century.
