I don't think it is necessary to seek "easier" introductions to probability than this classic. The prose is quite readable, and the mathematics is accessible to a reader who has some calculus and is willing to stick with it. (I took a peek at Volume 2, and I can't claim the same for it.) The author clearly marks out what can be skipped, so you can strengthen your probabilistic intuitions without beating yourself up too much.

Amusingly, even Feller sometimes nods.

I read this classic book for my Introduction to Probability class and found it quite pleasurable. It (the first volume) gives a pretty comprehensive overview of elementary probability. The author could be verbose at times but it does not really bother me. As its name suggests, it contains multiple interesting real-world examples (albeit not today world) to illustrate how we can apply the theoretical concepts.

A classic textbook of introduction to probability. It's an upper level in college or graduate school book. If you study physics or engineering, this is a book that can help to build a solid background in probability.

Greatly enjoyed my intro probability class but interested in plugging holes and exploring further. Heard this was the probability monogram and have high expectations.
