This fascinating exploration of probability, statistics and randomness explains how chaos and uncertainty are often behind the realities of everyday life. Learn how to toss a head ten times in a row, how to make predictions with impossible accuracy, why people volunteer to give up thousands of pounds for no good reason, and recreate a game show that left the woman with the world's highest IQ being reviled by a whole list of academics... until they discovered she was right.
Forget the clockwork universe. Welcome to Dice World, a unique portrait of a startlingly complex cosmos.
Brian's book Dice World: science and life in a random universe was longlisted for the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books 2014.
