Are you lucky or just obeying the laws of chance? Simon Singh looks at the mathematics behind various situations involving luck, risk and coincidence, from the casino to the hospital, from the courtroom to the supernatural. Our lives are dominated by the laws of chance and Simon will give some examples that illustrate how our intuition often misleads us. However, he will demonstrate how mathematics and critical thinking can help us live, thrive and survive.
