Which of us isn't fascinated by luck? Whether we do the Lotto, bet on the horses or just seem to always find a parking space, we consider how lucky we are on a daily basis. This book looks at luck across cultures and time to provide a comprehensive, yet entertaining, discourse on how we view being lucky.
The book is beautiful: hard-backed and filled with beautiful photographs and illustrations. More in-depth essays are interspersed with little snippets of information and the author has brought together a fascinating and beautiful collection of lucky facts and opinions which never fail to entertain and inform.
This book would be the perfect gift for anyone interested in traditions, anyone who gambles, anyone who has superstitions, anyone who crosses their fingers, throws salt over their shoulder or avoids walking under a ladder. It appeals to such a wide variety of potential readers, I can't think of a demographic who wouldn't enjoy it.
Make someone's day and buy this book. It's a safe bet you'll enjoy it.
