Richard Robinson’s delightful book is an exploration of the science behind Murphy’s Law (the truism that can be roughly stated as “if something can go wrong, it will”) – not just the simple probability tricks that fool our brains with such consistency – if we were any good at probabilities, there wouldn’t be a casino business – but also the many ways our brains can fool us.

One of Murphy's Laws that this book misses is "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"...such as the title of the book.

The majority of the book is 'evolution, evolution, evolution'....blah blah blah.

All about Murphy's law and other nuances of life. Read it!
