Be careful with what you read!

http://www.amazon.com/Technological-Risk-H-W-Lewis/dp/0393308294I stumbled upon the book "Technological Risk" (Chinese Translation) in 2000. That was just weeks before I filled out the applications for graduate schools and in 2001, I was sitting in the classroom of the University of Maryland studying probabilistic risk analysis as a Ph.D. student of reliability engineering.

Another book I was reading then, well, an ebook, is Probability Theory: The Logic of Science. Luckily, it was available as PDF. I was not able to pronounce "Bayesian" until, again, sat in the classroom at the University of Marlyland. 

Both books are very well written, and they deserve better popularity.
