I aim to make accessible the rules of the calculus of probability to those, unacquainted with the higher chapters of mathematics. The reading of my book will not require any other knowledge except elementary algebra, or even, strictly speaking, algebraic notation.

A self-contained treatment of the theory of probability, random processes. It is intended to lay theoretical foundations for measure and integration theory, and to develop the long term time average behavior of measurements made on random processes.
by Pierre Simon Laplace - Chapman & Hall
Classic book on probability theory. It demonstrates, without the use of higher mathematics, the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas.
