Hirsch" <> Subject: Probability of Reanimation Although I am not an expert in probability theory, most of my published papers over the last 25 years have been in mathematical biology, and some of them make use of probability theory. I have read Bob Ettinger's paper and find it convincing. His approach is novel and imaginative. Some of the math is difficult, but it should be studied by anyone who is seriously interested in the probability of reanimation and, more generally, by anyone who uses probability theory. Those who do not have sufficient mathematical background can, nevertheless, learn quite a bit by reading the text between the equations, owing to Bob's exceptional writing ability.
