It is excellent. You want to post this in "Books and Publications." Or better yet, search Books and Publications, there is plenty on it.

Can someone who's "not so hot" on the math side of things still get something out of this book? Will it be worth a read even though I would have to skip the majority of the mathamatical text which looks like japanese to me [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].

I'm enjoying it a lot and don't consider myself to be very good at math nor do I pay much attention to the specific calculations. I also feel they might as well have printed some of that stuff in a different language as far as I'm concerned. But there's more than enough simple meat in there to still make it worthwhile and they mostly just throw in the equattions and calculations for those who care and for completeness.
You don't even need to bother trying to figure out the calculations since the text usually gets the general point across anyway.

all the maths is explained very well. there is no prior knowledge needed.. probability is like the easiest branch of maths- its really not that hard to pick up..

It's like reading a textbook. Lots of pages containing really small text.

No thanks. Probably a good book, but I'm not interested in it.
