Beating The Odds takes a novel and intriguing look at sport, by exploring the mathematics behind the action. Discover the best tactics for taking a penalty, the pros and cons of being a consistent golfer, the surprising link between boxing and figure skating, the unusual location of England's earliest 'football' (in a parish church), and the formula for winning a game of tennis. Whatever your sporting interests, you will find plenty to absorb and amuse you in this insightful book - and maybe you will even find some new strategies for beating the odds.

Review:

This book is priceless, even indispensable -- Sunday Telegraph, August 9 2005. This is a light, lovely and well-written book that will reward both sport-lovers and those indifferent to it. With becoming modesty, the authors call it a "dip-in book". It is also more. There is consistent regard for the importance of sport in human history. --The Times, August 18 2007
