The Theory That Would Not Die: How Bayes' Rule Cra&hellip by Sharon Bertsch Mcgrayne
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
The book describes the history of application of Baye's rule and how it helped solve lots of problems that couldn't be solved otherwise. But it doesn't really explain how it helped solve all these problems which is frustrating. I understand why the author doesn't want to go into mathematical detail but just an indication of what was assumed and how they went about the claculation would have been nice. So in the end, its like a list of problems solved using Bay'es rule. On the other hand, the description of the people involved and the relationships between them is very nice.

Its more like a textbook. very few pictures or explanations so its hard to imagine how things will turn out before you make them if you don't have an Indian mother
