An introductory text in probability. As far as probability goes for most people, this book will be useful. Indeed, this is the recommended textbook to study for the first actuarial examination. The book is rich in examples and exercises that, as usual with probability, make you feel like playing games.

On the personal side, I regard this book high because it was the one used as the base to evaluate access to the graduate program in Statistics at the University of São Paulo.
