Reviews

The Book of Odds...shows the surprising probabilities governing everyday life, including how your sex life stacks up.--Salon.com
An enticing read from cover to cover, the odds are great that you will enjoy this book.--Library Journal
The Book of Odds is filled with good news (you have a relatively good chance of experiencing love at first sight), mixed news (you are less likely to be killed by a co-worker than by a sibling), and bad news (don't even ask).--Barnes & Noble, Editor's Recommendation
