Stephen S. Senn’s first edition of the book Dicing with Death: Chance, Risk and Health was published in 2003 by Cambridge University Press and became very popular amongst statisticians as well as non-statisticians. In this book, Stephen Senn explored the critical role of statistics in making decisions related to medical care, such as resource allocation, drug licensing, and causality in disease in a stimulating way without using any formula, equations, or statistical jargon, which usually non-statisticians do not like. Sharing the stories, paradoxes, and puzzles to the readers, he covered important topics such as clinical trials, life tables, vaccines, smoking and lung cancer, and even the effectiveness of prayer.
