[Day 44] A must read book for the summer

So I asked my professor for recommendations for a book to read this summer and he gave me this excellent read. An unexpected blockbuster, it has 638 reviews on Amazon.

A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates by the RAND Corporation.

Let’s take a look at the literary force that drives the compelling storytelling of this book.

Yep, the whole book is basically just pages and pages of numbers that have been randomly generated. It was amazing! Then how does it get only 3.9 out of 5 stars rating. I had to scroll down to see all the reviews.

This guy is upset that the page index is not random but predictably incremental.

Boy, I’d love to listen to this book when driving in the traffic

It’s reasonable to assume that people who read this book are fluent in binary, right?

Get your shit together, RAND Corporation

You would expect this major blockbuster to be translated into major languages

Because you have to read it more than once

But luckily, it’s going to the big screen. Brad Pitt is going to star as, you guessed it, 27473, and Maggie Gyllenhaal is lined up to play 70690

These aren’t the number you’re looking for.

Totes agree

If those reviews have convinced you–I know it did me–the book costs $299.95 for the hardcover and $57.12 for the paperback.
