The subtitle needs to be edited. Klugman retired last year.

so sad. And I didn't get to go to the retirement party. Stupid exams. They really should have known better than to schedule that during exam season...

I remember reading "Struck by Lightning" the summer before his Stats 131 class, which was unfortunate for him, because most of the trick questions came out of that book. People thought I was a genius for a semester when I could explain variable change in the Monte Hall problem on day 1.

Bringing this back a little...class of 2011 here. I only had Prof Klugman for Stat 132/Stat 141, but thoroughly enjoyed how he would criticize his own book throughout class

You had Stat132/Stat141 with Klugman and graduated in 2011? I only had him for Stat131 and graduated in 2010 with Parsa for 132/141.

Yep - I took them my first year (had Calc III and Stat 131 done during high school) to be able to take them with Klugman. I figured, if the guy wrote the book, I should try to take them with him.
