This is an excellent book by L. V. Tarasov on probability.

I have always found Russian math book writers to be on point, not going too much over your head, also respecting the reader's intelligence. If you like it, then you will love his calculus book, that one is also a real gem.





Yeah, his books are out of print. I have been looking for a hard copy of his calculus book. Really expensive.


Thanks for the reference anyway! I downloaded the Russian version in form of PDF document and enjoy reading it:-) What was great about USSR is its level of popularization of science. All these books written for kids or high school students were amazing.


Yes, and a number of them are now available for free over the internet. In Russian...


Based on the very light skim I just gave, I like that book. Thank you for the reference.
