The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives - Leonard Mlodinow, Sean Pratt

If we were all unfeeling iRobots (floor cleaners) who respond to the random encounters in our lives by simply changing direction then the premise of this book is justified, for we would all follow our individual drunkard's walks to whatever probabilistic future awaits us. However taking this a step further, Leonard Mlodinow, et al. I would love for young readers to find this book and discover a delight for science and math. But not before they've found their essential humanity first, a steady balance from which such preoccupations may spur greater works and ideas.
