This book is ideal for anyone who likes puzzles, brainteasers, games, gambling, magic tricks, and those who want to apply math and science to everyday circumstances.

Using the tools of inferential statistics, you can understand the way probability works, discover relationships, predict events with uncanny accuracy, and even make a little money with a well-placed wager here and there.

* Predict the outcomes of baseball games, know when to "go for two" in football, and anticipate the winners of other sporting events with surprising accuracy

* Demystify amazing coincidences and distinguish the truly random from the only seemingly randomeven keep your iPod's "random" shuffle honest

* Spot fraudulent data, detect plagiarism, and break codes

* How to isolate the effects of observation on the thing observed
