User Review - bluetyson - LibraryThingA really, reall dull mathematics text. An important book, but this one you will not be pleased with having to read, or at least I never came across anyone that was, when I had to use it. Highly detailed and quite complex look at the probability subject for the tertiary level beginner. Read full review
