If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I listen to a lot of pop sci books, but this is by far the worst. As far as I can tell, there appears to be no meaningful content at all in this book.
What could David J. Hand have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Add some meaningful content, there was no take-away at all form this book.
What didn’t you like about Paul Hodgson’s performance?
It was probably the content that had an impact on the low score. If you don't have great content to read, it's hard to make it sound interesting.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Honestly, no. The book was so bad I'm thinking about cancelling my Audible subscription for a while and moving to reading Kindle books. The fact I even had that thought should be telling of how bad this book is.
Any additional comments?
Hours of my life wasted.

This is an exciting book and a wonderful listen. There is a history of how people think about probability. The oldest known records are tables of outcomes in an ancient gambling game. You will love this book if you like being challenged and finding out why things are the way they are in science, math and the human mind. I didn't want it to end. I now have much more insight into probability than I did before. I definitely recommend this book. You will love it! The narration is excellent. This book is exciting and fun, I highly recommend it, especially if you like math, science, and psychology and want to know the reasons why things are the way they are in the universe. The author explains why miracles absolutely DO happen. Listen to find out why.

What did you love best about The Improbability Principle?
Difficult mathematics of probability theory explained clearly in non-mathematical language.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The different laws of improbability are explained convincingly that the impossible is plausible.
Have you listened to any of Paul Hodgson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, not before. Paul's narrative is excellent, spoken with clarity and enthusiasm.
If you could give The Improbability Principle a new subtitle, what would it be?
Not that impossible
Any additional comments?
Better to listen to a chapter or two each time and not in its entirety (if you have that much of time). Needs reflection and slow digestion.
