Some brief overview of this book

In the early seventeenth century, the outcome of something as simple as a dice roll was consigned to the realm of unknowable chance. Mathematicians largely agreed that it was impossible to predict the probability of an occurrence. Then, in 1654, Blaise Pascal and Pierre de Fermat exchanged a series of letters in which they developed a method to calculate risk. That method is what is now known as probability theory-a concept that allows us to think rationally about decisions and events. In The Unfinished Game, Keith Devlin masterfully chronicles Pascal and Fermats mathematical breakthrough, connecting a centuries-old discovery with its remarkable impact on the modern world.
