The Drunkard’s Walk – How Randomness Rules Our Lives

Can a book on math and history be interesting? Yes.

The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives
The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow is a great background into the mathematics of randomness. Even though I did pretty good in statistics, I wish I would have had this book to read first. Maybe I could have turned that B into an A. 😉

The book walks you through the history of understanding randomness. I really enjoyed it and plan to read the author’s other books on physics and geometry.
