Taking Chances from the Author: John Haigh. "What are the odds against winning the Lotto, The Weakest Link, or Who Wants to be a Millionaire? The answer lies in the science of probability, yet many of us are unaware of how this science works. Every day, people make judgements on a wide variety of situations where chance plays a role, including buying insurance, betting on horse-racing, following medical advice - even carrying an umbrella. In Taking Chances, John Haigh guides the reader round common pitfalls, demonstrates how to make better-informed decisions, and shows where the odds can be unexpectedly in your favour. This new edition has been fully updated, and includes information on top television shows, plus a new chapter on Probability for Lawyers."--BOOK JACKET.

Taking Chances from the Author: Jordan Howard Sobel. J. Howard Sobel has long been recognized as an important figure in philosophical discussions of rational decision. He has done much to help formulate the concept of causal decision theory. In this volume of essays Sobel explores the Bayesian idea that rational actions maximize expected values, where an action's expected value is a weighted average of its agent's values for its possible total outcomes. Newcomb's Problem and The Prisoner's Dilemma are discussed, and Allais-type puzzles are viewed from the perspective of causal world Bayesianism. The author establishes principles for distinguishing options in decision problems, and studies ways in which perfectly rational causal maximizers can be capable of resolute choices. Sobel also views critically Gauthier's revisionist ideas about maximizing rationality. This collection will be a desideratum for anyone working in the field of rational choice theory, whether in philosophy, economics, political science, psychology or statistics. Howard Sobel's work in decision theory is certainly among the most important, interesting and challenging that is being done by philosophers.

Taking Chances from the Author: Molly Keane. Those who suffered because of her might think of Mary that she hurt others, herself she could not hurt; but Jer, knowing her better...knew she hurt herself perhaps most deeply. Since the death of her parents, Roguey, Maeve and Jer have cared for one another and for Sorristown, their elegant home. Together they have fished and hunted, unravelled secrets by bedroom fires and sipped gin cocktails. But this pattern of intimacy is about to be broken by Maeve's marriage to Rowley. A week before the wedding, her bridesmaid Mary arrives. Meeting her for the first time Rowley describes Mary as a 'factor for disturbance', little realising the extent to which his prophecy will prove true for each of them.

Taking Chances from the Author: Daryl “The Kid” Shaffer. “What if ...?” In this freewheeling and heartfelt memoir of a colorful and adventurous life lived in pursuit of that very question, Daryl “The Kid” Shaffer shares tales—some taller than others—of his life as a modern cowboy in the Montana wilds. The adventures he shared with true friends inspired the cowboy to become an author. Based on his journals and memories, he shares his favorite tales from his life on the range. His real-life transformation into the hero figure of his childhood began on a whim. When a beautiful young woman shares a want ad with him, his imagination is momentarily engaged. But in the style of young men, he quickly forgets about the fateful ad that offered a job working as a ranch hand in Montana. Months later, that same scrap of paper found its way back into his imagination. And with a single phone call, his cowboy life began. With a spirit of adventure matched only by his sense of humor, his tales are a vicarious trip to a time and place most have only dreamed of.
