A million random digits

"A truly amazing genre-breaking work of art unlike any that has ever been or ever will. I was captivated from the moment I opened the cover until the extremely suspenseful moment I turned the last page. With that said, I was a little disappointed that 71602 was knocked off by 92937 just as the plot was unfolding." Read the customer reviews, diggers

A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates - quite the book

After a poorly formatted ISBN search I found this book. I wish I knew someone to give it to who would be excited by it.A classic to be read from cover to cover.
