Read from June 26, 2011 to March 01, 2012 — I own a copy

A bit boring, but informative.

I liked the explanation of the fact that people naturally expect to see more alteration than there exists in a truly random sequence. Hence our tendency to see some order in random events.

I also enjoyed the last chapter that talks about the role of scientific education in teaching people to think clearly about the evidence in everyday life.
