January Bookclub: The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard  Mlodinow

The meetings in January will be at the home of Ed Adams, January 12 and at the home of Brian Ling January 26, both at 2pm.  Everyojanuary-book-clubne is welcome to join us for these interesting discussions.

With the born storyteller’s command of narrative and imaginative approach, Leonard Mlodinow vividly demonstrates how our lives are profoundly informed by chance and randomness and how everything from wine ratings and corporate success to school grades and political polls are less reliable than we believe.

By showing us the true nature of chance and revealing the psychological illusions that cause us to misjudge the world around us, Mlodinow gives us the tools we need to make more informed decisions. From the classroom to the courtroom and from financial markets to supermarkets, Mlodinow’s intriguing and illuminating look at how randomness, chance, and probability affect our daily lives will intrigue, awe, and inspire.
