Description: What are the real chances that:
  • Your tax return will be audited? (See page 53.)
  • Your television will catch fire? (See page 117.)
  • You will injure yourself on a child's toy? (See page 119.)
  • You will get whiplash this year? (See page 151.)
  • You will be injured in an elevator? (See page 171.)

Larry Laudan takes a fresh look at the risks and odds we all face every day. This time out, the author of the popular Book of Risks has compiled an astonishing assortment of surprising statistics--and sometimes startling truths--about the way things really are. It's a delightful excursion into the intriguing realm of chance and probability, with plenty of wry wit and laughs along the way. From the lethal to the absurd, the odds are you'll love it! Find out:

  • How reducing one risk may actually increase another
  • How to determine the odds of something actually happening to you
  • How you can avoid the most common risks
  • And much more!
