Fluke: chance, chaos and why everything we do matters

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 29th Jan 2024

 Free

Brian Klaas will explore how our world really works, driven by strange interactions and random events. How much difference does our decision to hit the snooze button make? Did one couple's vacation really change the course of the twentieth century? What are the smallest accidents that have tilted the course of history itself?

His new book, Fluke, is a provocative new vision of how our world really works - and why chance determines everything.
