Jeffrey Rosenthal Biography

Jeffrey S. Rosenthal is a professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Toronto. At the age of 24, Rosenthal was awarded his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Harvard University. He is the author of two textbooks on probability theory and has published more than 50 research papers. Holding a Fellowship with the Institute of Mathematical Studies, Rosenthal was recently the recipient of the Pierre Robillard Award and the COPSS President's Award, for his outstanding contributions to statistical research.

In his bestselling book, Struck by Lightning, Rosenthal combined his mathematical knowledge with the odds of probability to explain the mystery behind certain common occurrences. From lotteries to casinos, insurance rates to crime rates, game shows to airline crashes, cancer to SARS, Struck by Lightning deconstructs the odds and oddities of chance in an understandable, relevant and irreverent exploration. Randomness, uncertainty and probability are everywhere, and while no one can predict uncertain events with certainty, we can at least understand uncertainty itself. In this entertaining look at the world of probabilities, Rosenthal explains the mechanics of randomness and teaches us how to develop an informed perspective on probability.

In addition to his research work at the University of Toronto, Rosenthal is frequently interviewed and consulted regarding his statistical theories. In recent years, his work has been highlighted in interviews with the BBC, CBC, the Globe and Mail, and countless radio programs and newspaper articles from around the world.

Struck By Lightning

    Randomness, uncertainty and probability are everywhere, and while no one can predict uncertain events with certainty, we can at least understand uncertainty itself. Jeffrey Rosenthal, an improbably talented math professor, musician and improvisational comedian, explains the mechanics of randomness and teaches us how to develop an informed perspective on probability.

    From lotteries to casinos, insurance rates to crime rates, game shows to airline crashes, cancer to SARS, Struck by Lightning deconstructs the odds and oddities of chance in an understandable, relevant and irreverent exploration.

    The Probability Perspective will never replace all of your other critical thinking skills and decision-making methods – things like intuition and compassion and determination and honour and just plain common sense, but it will provide you with one more tool to better understand the world's randomness and your place within it.
