I was expecting something better! Being an engineering student I always loved probability! Sometimes it's so intuitive while many times the result seem totally absurd!The book started okish, and kept on degrading until I stopped reading it! I was waiting to read something which I never thought about, but the book turned out very different, It seems as if author wrote to just for the sake of writing it.I would be reading this book soon again because I feel that maybe I didn't engage with the book [...]

This layman’s introduction to probability was okay. It covers the usual topics – relative frequency approach, subjective probability, history of probability, probability distributions, probability applications – with as little maths as possible. The second half, on applications, covers many topics and isn’t particularly well-written. The author does, to his great credit, describe the Poisson model for football. While the book wasn’t bad, I personally don’t see the benefits of it over [...]

A good review of introductory probability and its applications. The first half covers the basics, including the most common distributions and the latter half applies these to practical situations including some non-intuitive problems.

Probability is a funny beast. In its most rigorous and formal form it is one of the more interesting subfields of mathematics. And yet, unlike much else of mathematics, it is very familiar subject that has entered much of popular and colloquial usage. We talk casually and without much thinking of the chance of rain tomorrow, probability of winning the lottery, and even probabilities of various outcomes in our everyday private lives (passing the test, getting a new job, finding a girlfriend). It [...]

This was my second book in the Very Short Introduction series. The Mathematics introduction set the bar pretty high, which contributed to my disappointment with this one. Probability starts off strong by explaining different "views" of probably and clarifying some of the terms. This part was actually quite interesting and helpful. After the first chapter it begins a steady descent into a world ever less clear and familiar. The book is light on math, which is probably a relief for most readers, b [...]

Alejandro Shirvani
Nice concise introduction to the subject: covers the difference between objective and subjective approches to probability, gives a quick run down the nuts and bolts of addition and multiplication laws and then takes the reader through a historical run down of the main ideas in probability, outlining things like the binomial, exponential and poisson distributions.The book also flags up a number of common fallacies and has a number of real world applications which illustrate how the probability ca [...]

4 stars until the very end, when counter-intuitive, and, as far as I've been able to research, false, statements about probability are stated but not even attempted to be explained, like that series of three of coin tosses aren't supposedly all equally likely to occur. Still this book is way better than the related 'Statistics: A Very Short Introduction' which leaves all the details out and consequently is not informative at all.

A great introductory text. Deciding what to include and what to skip over is not a task I would been able to complete Not without an algorithm anyway! The author has done a great job and whether as an introduction to the subject, a reminder of the key principles or scratching an itch to find out what this subject might be about - this is a good book.

Julia
As the title suggests, good for an overview of probability studies.

It's an interesting book but as the rest of the series I don't think it's a good introduction. It's better if one's already familiarised with the material.

Good, mostly for bibliography for beginners
