Recommended for: Everyone
Read in May, 2007

Another witty, brilliant, and wry take on the magical mysteries of science. I'm only 1/4 of the way through, and have a shiny new respect and comprehension of some of the most basic yet misunderstood wonders of probabilities and statistics. Yes, you read correctly! I enjoyed reading about probabilities and statistics! Natalie Angier has a rare and beautiful gift of translating numbers speak into a wholly relatable and FUNNY experience.
