Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hidden Mathematics of Sport (Hardcover)
I am a great fan of the authors, having bought six of their books previously. When this arrived today, I was shocked to find that, apart from one amalgamation of two chapters and one new chapter on cheating in sport, plus a few up-datings of references to sporting events since 2007, this is the same book as "How to Take a Penalty" published in 2005 and "Beating the Odds" published in 2007. I did not suffer the indignity of buying the 2005 book, but I did buy both the 2007 and 2011 books.
For some reason, the publishers have rearranged the chapters, so that, for instance, Chapter One in 2007 is now Chapter 6, Chapter 5 has been relegated to Chapter 15 and, somewhat surprisingly, Chapters 5 and 9 have become the new Chapter 7.
I was very disappointed at this sleight-of-hand, and, although the price was not great, feel extremely let down.
