A great fascinating read,
This review is from: Beating the Odds: The Hidden Mathematics of Sport (Paperback)
I found this book after reading a review in The Guardian while doing research - and here is the wisdom of authors and publishers allowing brief reads on Amazon. I read a page, then another, then another and was hooked, I had to have it.
What makes my purchase all the more remarkable is that I have little interest in sport, unless dragged to a match or my country is playing a major match and my mathematical ability is dangerous to put it mildly, but this book has been written so well and is so accessible that I have no hesitation in recommending it for a great few hours weekend reading, a wonderful gift for the sports fanatic in your life and an essential research and resource tool
