really liked it
Read from June 27 to August 16, 2016

I can see why this book is highly rated. It has a profound impact in a wide range of disciplines. Daniel made the book entertaining by involving the reader with questions taken from sample interviews that were conducted over the course of his career.

It was a bit dry at times, but I spare the author and the books writing style. I simply don't find a particular interest in probability and statistics. The subject remains important in everyday life and I felt compelled to take my time to understand the content of this book. It took me longer to read, but it was worth the effort since I feel like these are solid notions that could be useful to just about anyone. I guess I prefer more personal books that have more of a narrative instead of being different subjects divided by chapters. Still, the book does it's best to keep a linear continuity between each subject.
