# Surprises in Probability-Seventeen Short Stories

#### presto

Steep price for 17 stories. $40 for the paperback and$100 for the hardback, damn!!

Uh huh.

Sure.

How many of the 17 "stories" were taken from other sources? I've read at least some of them elsewhere. Seems like a compilation of interesting things related to probability you would find on the internet. I doubt many if any of them are your original work.

L. O. L.

THAT'S your rebuttal to me asking if anything in the book is your original work? "You are extremely unfair?"

And you're telling me to fork over $40 for a 122 page paperback book to see why I'm "extremely unfair"? L. O. L. A few final words from my side.: 1. ApolloChariot you did not ask if anything is orginal about the book , but you doubted whether there is anything original about the book. This is no excuse for my reaction saying " you are extremely unfair". My apologies. I can tell you that the book is original work , as was also concluded by those who reviewed the book for the publisher. Please have a look at the summaries, which I have included as pdf in my first item. 2. I agree with everybody that the book is overpriced (it is actually 136 pages rather than 122 pages, as erroneously stated on the site of the publisher, but still$40 is too much money for a popular-science book of 136 pages).
3. I don't mind if the moderator removes my not very subtle advertisement " for the book.

Book seems very interesting. I would definitely buy it if it was 14.99$Paperback Kindle edition for 9.99$
People on this form thik a lot about how much something is worth. For most people on this forum pricing things is what they do for a living.
If I find a used one in that price range I will buy it.
Congrats on your work.
