A Book For You

This was my favorite non-fiction read of the year.The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow

And the winner is lesterj

I'll take all requests for the book left in the comments during the next 48 hours, or so, and then use a random number generator to determine the winner. I'll then ship the book at my expense to the winner. The offer is limited to residents of the U.S. and Canada. My apologies to my good friends in other countries but the cost of shipments to other destinations is simply too high.

Note:The offer is open only to registered comments others will be ignored. Please make it clear if you want to be considered for the book or are just commenting.



I never turn down a free book :)

Oh ya Mon. Tahnks.

How appropriate! A random number generator gets to choose who will read a book about randomness! I'd love to read it.

I'll take my chances. They are better than the lotto. Much better. Add my name to the contest.

I've always been facscinated by the idea of mathematical randomness.

Enter me into the random number generator, please!

i'm in. and i will pray that i lose, thus proving the existence of god if i do. so really, it's a win either way.

"i'm in. and i will pray that i lose, thus proving the existence of god if i do. so really, it's a win either way."
