Bookworms (Book Group for Adults): Randomness, Chance & Probability

The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow

October 13th at 6:30 pm

What role do numbers play in our daily lives? How do we interpret chance events and how do they impact our future behavior in a particular situation? How reliable or unreliable are wine ratings, political polls, and school grades? Physicist Mlodinow’s book on predictability–or the lack thereof–is sure to challenge some of your views.
