The Improbability Principle: Why Coincidences, Miracles, and Rare Events Happen Every Day

Chapter 1: The Mystery

This chapter from David Hand's The Improbability Principle illustrates striking examples of rare events that seem so improbable, unexpected and unlikely that they must be coincidental – or maybe not. In this book, author David J. Hand weaves together a set of fundamental laws to explain what he calls the improbability principle, which asserts that extremely improbable events are actually commonplace. Curious?
