The Improbability Principle

Statistician David Hand does not believe in miracles. Nor does he believe in chance. Using the laws of inevitability, Hand demonstrates that extraordinarily rare events and coincidences are anything but. Hand is the author of "The Improbability Principle: Why Coincidences, Miracles, and Rare Events Happen Every Day."
