This book certainly reminds me of Daniel Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow" and Nassim Nicholas Taleb's "The Black Swan". Actually, Kahneman's name was mentioned a lot (together with Amos Tversky) in this book and it seems that Kahneman and Tversky were the pioneers who taught us how much people didn't understand randomness. I think, availability bias (p.28/26th line), heuristics (p.174/5th line) and confirmation bias (p.189/24th line) that the author discusses in this book have also been discussed at least in Kahneman's book.
Comparing this book with the above-mentioned books, this author here has discussed more in depth how to calculate the probability. At some point, I thought he's really teaching people how to calculate probability (which is probably difficult for most readers) and I've even attempted some calculations. But soon I've realized that this is not really the case as he soon turned to narrative and conceptual type of discussion. Interestingly, somebody (from ETH Zürich) has helped calculate the probability of a person with a positive mammogram actually having breast cancer (as described in the 1st paragraph of p.117) to be ~9.4%.
Overall, it's a very interesting and educational book to read even though I've read something similar before. The author does try a little to show how to calculate probability that other books aimed for the general public usually don't try. It contains a lot of interesting history that I didn't know. Eg. people didn't write about probability calculations until the 16th century --- apparently first by Gerolamo Cardano, who died in 1576 and his "Games of Chance" was not published (as it was rejected by the publisher in his lifetime!) until 1663 --- "By then his methods of analysis had been reproduced and surpassed" (last sentence on p.59). Apparently, the ancient Greek seemingly knew nothing about probability and only liked those quarters of mathematics as perfect as geometry (p.26-28) --- which is another new point of view for me :-)
In the "Index" (at the end of the book), they have listed pages "190-91" for "confirmation bias" on p.241. But actually it first appeared on the 24th line of p.189.
