I read this classic book for my Introduction to Probability class and found it quite pleasurable. It (the first volume) gives a pretty comprehensive overview of elementary probability.

In the preface, Feller wrote about his treatment of uctuation in coin tossing: The results are so amazing and so at variance with common intuition that even sophisticated colleagues doubted that coins actually misbehave as theory predicts. The record of a simulated experiment is therefore included

The title could be almost comical calling this an introduction. Just a quick flip through of the book will show how advanced it is with some extremely complex mathematics. See the attached photo from page 361.

The author says that 7.3 is "easily verified". The most difficult of conclusions are named obvious and easy by the author. Feller is exceptionally brilliant, but he has real difficulty explaining concepts to someone below his level.

Content in the book is excellent if you are willing to put in the time. There were some really interesting conclusions about "fair" games and how often the theory diverges from what one observes in real world situations.

This book could be really useful for someone interested in advanced theoretical probability theory.

This book is a true classic on probability using frequentist approach. It's full of wisdom! Unlike contemporary books that give quick formulas, this classic is dense and presents a slower learning experience. Its emphasis is on deep understanding and analysis instead of merely performing calculations. There are lots of interesting examples that help build up the reader's intuitions that can last. For example, its explanations on Poisson distribution is one of the best I've come across. It should be every scientist's reference book.

Really, really well done. I wouldn't recommend this as first exposure to probability and maybe not even second exposure. But after you've read a book or two about probability, solved lots of problems, and then some... read this book. It will clear up an awful lot of questions and ambiguities.

In addition to the math, the book gives a lot of flavor of the history of probability theory in the 1900s. Very nicely done.

I studied statistics in school and I think this book is too difficult for beginners. However, I like that it provides a lot of examples. I would use it as a reference book but not an introductory textbook. Also there are some typos in the book( for example, on page 10, r=3 balls in n=4 cells, sample space is not 81)

The chapter dedicated to random walks is particularly illuminating.

The more you read, the more you get into the incredible depth of the text.

Volume I is dedicated to the discrete probability and Volume II to the continuous (measure-theoretic) probability.

If you are interested in the subject, you must have both volumes. Every time you pick up one of them, you will discover a hidden treasure not unveiled in previous readings.

This is a classic book who has an excelent content, however the quality of the book material is regular.

This is thus far the best book on probability theory i've ever read. Its accessible, detailed, and has enough examples to make sure you can wrap your head around each topic thouroughly, often referring to past examples and expanding on them. It's a joy to read (as much as a math text can be anyway). I ended up hunting down Vol 2 in used but good condition to complete the set. I'd recommend these books to anyone that wants to get a strong grasp of probability theory. Definitely one of the prizes of my math text collection.
The author is famed for his intuition about probability.
He gets to the gist of the idea without alot of math.
This book is useful for teaching very creative people
as it has a wide variety of problems from easy to
research level (what ever that might be...)
