I really enjoyed this book. It takes you a on a journey of lucky discovery. The author tells a great tale combing historical facts and events with his own interpretation. I found it hard to put it down and highly recommend it :-)
This is both a fascinating, well-researched analysis of the phenomenon of luck – from whether it exists at all to differing interpretations around the world – and an eye-opening description of some instances of good fortune that must have an explanation of some sort. Whether or not you believe in luck (and personally I’m still not sure), it’s an enjoyable and informative read.
