This textbook is ideal for an undergraduate introduction to probability, with a calculus prerequisite. It is based on a course that the author has taught many times at Berkeley. The text's overall style is informal, but all results are stated precisely, and most are proved. Understanding is developed through intuitive explanations and examples. Graphs, diagrams, and geometrical ideals motivate results that might otherwise look likely purely formal manipulations.


A text for a one-quarter or one-semester course, aimed at students who have done a year of calculus. The style is deliberately informal, and many examples are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
