>I just finished a great book, "Probability One: Why There Must Be
Intelligent
>Life in the Universe", by Amir Aczel, who wrote "Fermat's Last Theorem"
and is
>a professor of statistics.
>
>What made me think of this list was the introduction to the book, where Amir
>relates how he came to write this book. His publisher told him that Carl
>Sagan wanted to write a book called "Probability One" on that same
subject. I
>had never heard that before.
>
>Unfortunately, after finishing this book professor Aczel's writing is not at
>the level of Sagan's, and he makes some very large leaps of faith to support
>his hypothesis, but great title.
