Don’t get into a fight with him

Duelling Idiots and Other Probability Puzzlers by Paul J. Nahin

An interesting collection of 21 probability questions with solutions and computer simulation code written for MathLab. An enjoyable read with the author emphasising that not all problems have a nice closed form solution and sometimes a computer simulation is the only way to get a result.
