Not very interesting and to long.,

This review is from: Beyond Coincidence (Hardcover)
I gave this book two stars because whilst it may sound like an interesting and amusing subject it is way to long and doesn't present us with anything more than one coincidence after another for 90% of the book.
So, all coincidence can be explained mathematically and boiled down to a probability. I guess if you are inclined to read too much into everything, and look for spooks in every darkened room than that may be news to you, but otherwise it doesn't really offer anything of interest. The instances of probability are ok for the first few pages, but after that I found myself flicking through the book. If it had been written in a fraction of the pages and sold at a fraction of the price it might have been good for something to flick through when bored or on the toilet. Otherwise it's just too much about a quite boring run of the mill subject.
