A psychiatrist, disillusioned with life, decides to live his life by the dice. This means choosing some options, throwing a pair of dice and doing exactly what they say! The lead character creates what is effectively a new religion, all based around the dice.
The review of this Book prepared by Nic Sterne
Bod on 9/9/2015 8:44:42 PM says: this book is much more complicated than this, for not only do the dice determine what the dice man does, it also sets others, some of whom are his patients, in what could be called inappropriate situations.
the options are arbitrary, and no cause and effect analysis done, it looks to be that apart from making the corresponding choice presented by the numbers of the dice, that action is then taken.
of course, this places an element of chance, as well as the two ends of a behaviour, too little or too much as the four axis about which we would normally make a decision, instead of using the brain exclusively. its a difficult read, as its too damn scary that there are probably a large amount of people out there who make decisions based on such chance.
