'Mlodinow writes in a breezy style, interspersing probabilistic mind-benders with portraits of theorists ! The result is a readable crash course in randomness.' New York Times 'If you're strong enough to have some of your favorite assumptions challenged, please read the Drunkard's Walk, a history, explanation, and exaltation of probability theory.'
