Pub. Date:
An expert in statistical analysis, Laudan shows that numerous risk figures are the opposite of what we've been led to believe from media hype. His fascinating book offers a lighthearted look at the risks we face in everyday life-running the gamut from risks around the home to crime, hobbies, sports and disease. All figures are easy to understand and many are illustrated with clear graphs. Features 40 plus sidebars which provide extra tidbits of information.
