5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book for math people of all levels., 3. Mai 1999
This book actually has 56 great problems in probability as well as very detailed solutions.
Most (if not all) do *not* require advanced mathematics but do require some clever thinking. A lot of these problems could be tackled by high school students and some of these problems will make PhDs blush!


Everything Scrabble
Everything Scrabble
von Joe Edley
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book kicks ass., 19. Januar 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Everything Scrabble (Taschenbuch)
This book isn't written for the latest official word list, but there aren't THAT many changes in what words are acceptable.
But this book is great. It explains basic strategy (which most people would never think about) such as how to decide what letters to leave on your rack, and also gives you lists of key words to remember, such as the 2-letter-words and the SATINE words and the 3-letter words with X, J, or Z. And then there are exercises to help you find those words on your rack. Some of these exercises are really tough.
After reading this book and studying a little bit, I went from being the WORST player in the world to being a player who averages about one bingo per game. (A bingo is a play in which all seven tiles are used.)
Buy this book.
And if you need updated word lists, check out the on-line word generator.


What Has Government Done to Our Health Care?
What Has Government Done to Our Health Care?
von Terree P. Wasley
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great book on how to solve health care problems., 1. Juli 1998
This book gives a thorough analysis of why government medicine has failed and is failing, and explains the dangers of further socializing medicine. But more importantly, the author explains how to solve our current ills. It's not the fastest paced book, but it's a real eye-opener!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is one of the best books ever written., 1. Juli 1998
Hazlitt explains the one fallacy that underlies almost every misconception about economics. Anyone can understand this book, and those with econ backgrounds will love it even more.
