Taking Chances Book Review:

Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything. Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career-Marine father’s thumb. Ready to live life her own way and experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit, she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University. She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with Brandon, who becomes her boyfriend—and her roommate’s brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled...they’re exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs.

Taking Chances Book Review:

"What are the odds against winning the Lotto, The Weakest Link, or Who Wants to be a Millionaire? The answer lies in the science of probability, yet many of us are unaware of how this science works. Every day, people make judgements on a wide variety of situations where chance plays a role, including buying insurance, betting on horse-racing, following medical advice - even carrying an umbrella. In Taking Chances, John Haigh guides the reader round common pitfalls, demonstrates how to make better-informed decisions, and shows where the odds can be unexpectedly in your favour. This new edition has been fully updated, and includes information on top television shows, plus a new chapter on Probability for Lawyers."--BOOK JACKET.

Taking Chances Book Review:

Jordan Howard Sobel has long been recognized as an important figure in philosophical discussions of rational decision. He has done much to help formulate the concept of causal decision theory. In this volume of essays, Sobel explores the Bayesian idea that rational actions maximize expected values, where an actions's expected value is a weighted average of its agent's values for its possible total outcomes. Newcomb Problems and the Prisoners' Dilemma are discussed, and Allais-type puzzles are viewed from the perspective of causal world Bayesianism. The author establishes principles for distinguishing options in decision problems, and studies ways in which perfectly rational causal maximizers can be capable of resolute choices. Several of the essays concern games, with interacting ideally rational and well-informed maximizing rationality. Sobel also views critically David Gauthier's revisionist ideas about maximizing rationality.

Michael Starkis, an equestrian rider, is badly injured in a car crash, needing twelve months off work and riding. His horse, Biscuit, was being looked after by a young woman, Penny Chance, who persuades him to return to riding despite his handicap of one leg being shorter when it was reset. They train together and form a relationship of love, but she is forced to leave to help on her family farm in Wales. He returns to work as an agricultural agent, still aiming to be on the Equestrian Olympic team. Eight years later, his aim fails as his new horse falls and has to be put down. That same day, he receives a call from a seven-year-old boy named Harry Chance, who is trying to save his mother from debt. He realises that Harry is his son, conceived on the only time he had sex with Penny. He returns and marries her, using his wealth to develop businesses together, including two inns, followed later by a brewery. The call to riding this time comes as an amateur steeplechase jockey, aiming to win the world-famous Grand National with a horse named Done Deal. A year before, Michael was asked to take a chance riding Red Royal, his business partner’s horse, in the same race. Will this race be his downfall?

Taking Chances Book Review:

In 1955, Otto Schmalz had been a single German immigrant in Canada for four years. It was time for him to go back to Europe and find a wife. In this, Schmalz’s fourth book of memoir, he takes us on an adventure that takes us from his return to Canada with his German fiancée through their early years together, which were abundantly propelled by an appetite for taking chances. Otto took on jobs away from home to earn more money, leaving his new-to-Canada bride to figure the country out on her own (she did). He postponed an urgent operation so he could finish his first year at university—at age thirty-three (he did). They went with nearly no income for five years, while Otto took engineering courses in the hope of becoming an engineer (he did). Otto and Gertrud’s bold approach to their lives, which featured no little sacrifice and financial hardship, has proved a spectacular success. Taking Chances Paid off, and the rollicking tales it unspools, is proof of that.
