Summary
  • "An eye-opening and engrossing look at rare moments, why they occur, and how they shape our world"--
  • A statistician presents his theory that extraordinary and rare events are actually commonplace and cites stories of two-time lottery winners and other bizarre coincidences to support his theory that unlikely events statistically must happen
