This work starts out as a pretty interesting read, but after chapter 5, it's just anecdotes of rare events. These, although amusing at first, quickly become predictable and boring. One must also wonder about the technical competence of the authors. On page 103 William Harston is quoted as estimating the probability of an amateur golfer having a hole-in-one as 1 chance in 43,000. He also estimates that 200 million rounds of golf are played annually. From this, the author(s) extrapolate that the expectation of two golfers having hole-in-ones, back-to-back, on the same hole, as being about once per year. I'm not sure how they came to this conclusion given the data. In fact, based on the Harston data, the macroscopic expectation of this unlikely event, is more like once every 2.3 years, given, on top of the Harston data, that typically only 4 holes of any 18 round are credible hole-in-one candidates.
So, if you're looking for a book delving into the technical, probabilistic, back-ground of rare coincidences, this is not it. If you just want to pump your head full of tale after tale of rare coincidences, then you might be satisfied.
