Overview

"Clegg's writing style is highly readable, and the contemporary cultural references impressed upon me . . . how accessible Dice World] is."--Chemistry World

Perfect for anyone convinced of the utter randomness of existence, (including fans of Luke Rhinehart's cult novel Dice Man) this title from popular science genius Brian Clegg (Inflight Science) shows how modern science has revealed that probability and chaos lie at the heart of nature.

Described as "methodical, clear, entertaining, and just a bit mind-boggling" by the Irish Times, Dice World uncovers the truths and lies behind probability and statistics, explains how chaos theory is behind every great success in business, and demonstrates the possibilities quantum mechanics has given us for creating unbreakable ciphers and even for Star Trek-like teleportation.

Brian Clegg is an acclaimed science writer published by Icon Books and St. Martin's Press. His books include Inflight Science, The Quantum Age (forthcoming), The Universe Inside You, Gravity, and Extra-Sensory.
