    One thought on “Beyond Coincidence: Amazing Stories of Coincidence and the Mystery Behind Them”

    1. Easy to read, yet the information surpass the limits of our understanding. The facts, the events - though real - make me think that our world is nothing but a neighborhood; and regardless the distance that separates us, we are still neighbors.

    2. A little girl writes her name on a balloon and let's it go only for it to land in the backyard of another little girl with the exact same name. A man is killed by a taxi while riding his moped and one year later to the day his brother meets his fate at the hands of the same taxi carrying the same passenger while riding the same scooter. A woman buys two lottery tickets in two states, the winning numbers for each happens to be the numbers she bought for other. It's hard not to think that there mu [...]

    3. A great blend of facts, science, experiments, and anecdotes.The first half of the book deals with the science behind so called "coincidences", discussing possibilities both very scientific and metaphysical. The authors also devote a good part of the book to the psychology behind why humans need coincidences, why we are so excited to see them, why we like a great big universal "YES" saying "you are important!" etc. The tone is very conversational and interesting, and very respectful whether you b [...]

    4. كنت بسمع محاضره جميله إسمها "التزامنيه بين الصدفه والقدر -للدكتور عدنان إبراهيم" ممكن تحميلها من هنا 4shared/mp3/HPtiZOhZ/_ أو youtube/watch?v=2zjDGy و بعدها دخلت على الجودريدز علشان أضيف روايه جديده Of mice and men روايه لا إسمها ولا موضوعها يشبه الكتاب دهو أنا بعمل بحث عن الروايه على الموقع طلعلي الك [...]

    5. I'm not sure why some reveiw's of this book are so poor what did you expect ?? It does what it clearly say's on the tin with over 200 stories of strange, funny, lucky & tragic coincidences there's enough to keep anyone amused for a couple of hours i especially liked the farmer called McDonald story so easy to please !! A nice in-betweener with at least a handful of stories that you'll want to pass on.

    6. We all experience them at sometime in our lives, but it depends upon the circumstance whether we consider them good or bad, lucky or unlucky coincidences. This is a great book, which discuses the science / chance of events happening in the first part. Then in the second part of the book there are anecdotes and stories, which make for interesting reading. The book is written in an easy readable style which would appeal to most readers. A good read.

    7. A compilation of well-researched coincidences. THe autors present them without speculation as to their possible meaning. Enjoy them for the sheer amazement of them. Example: A 10 year old girl named Laura Buxton attaches her name and phone number to a helium balloon, and releases it from her back yard. It travels 140 miles, and lands in the back yard of another 10 year old girl named Laura Buxton!

    8. Skipped the whole first part there's obviously nothing factual that can be said about coincidences. Just speculation or a description of "how it makes us feel". Enjoyed reading some of the stories. Some of them are beyond belief. Others are rather mundane. Somewhat hard to take since you don't know for yourself whether they're even true! Reading them gets tiresome though.

    9. I was expecting more mathematics in the explanations but other than that it was very interesting. I agree with other reviews that the 2nd half drags on a bit.

    10. features a lot of quirky stories, and is surprisingly funny at times, but ultimately it failed to hold together, largely, i think, because the authors didn't know what point they wanted to make

    11. I absolutely loved this book, and am surprised it doesn't have more stars. Simply structured and written, it has lots and lots of real life stories that are, well, beyond coincidence.

    12. Some interesting stories about coincidence in this book but I was disappointed by the pseudo-scientific explanations which were not convincing.

    13. This was just fun to read. Sure, some of it was a little redundant, but, overall, it was informative and intriguing.
