The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

July 24, 2008

Are we really able to judge the world as we see it? Today on Focus, author Leonard Mlodinow joins the show to demonstrate how our lives are deeply affected by randomness, and how every statistic in our lives may be less reliable than we think. He'll also discuss how we can look past these illusions and make more informed decisions in our daily lives.

Guest: Leonard Mlodinow (television screenwriter; creator of award winning games; Lecturer in Computation and Neural Systems at the California Institute of Technology; author of The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives)
