He is frequently cited by major media outlets, such as BBC, CBC and the Globe and Mail. Rosenthal has also written two high distributed textbook on probability theory.

Combining his skills as a math lover and improv comedy performer, Jeffrey Rosenthal discusses his book 'Struck by Lighting.' The guide has become a best-seller, providing insight on the probability of random occurrences. He argues that within every odd experience, there is in fact a pattern. If these patterns are recognized, they could be used to an advantage. He encourages the audience to pause on randomness, and reconsider the particular reason why such experiences are considered random.
