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.
