Life can be unpredictable. And the more you can predict, the more control you will have over your own life. From calculating the health risks of smoking a pack of cigarettes a day to deciding on the best investments for your money, probabilities play a part in nearly all aspects of everyday life. Now, physics professor John D. McGervey puts all the facts and figures at your fingertips to help you make savvy, informed choices at home, at work, and at play. You will learn how the author believes you can:
* Increase your chances of winning blackjack, contract bridge, horse racing, sports betting, and more
* Get the most for your dollar when investing or buying insurance
* Judge the risks of such common activities as smoking, using drugs, owning a handgun, and driving without a seat belt
* Avoid faulty gambling systems and identify misleading statistics that can be used to draw you into poor investments
* And much more.
Inside you'll find a lively, entertaining, enlightening approach to minimizing your risks and maximizing your results -- simple strategies designed to give you the edge in life.
