13: The World’s Most Popular Superstition
Nathaniel Lachenmeyer (au)
Part cultural history, part detective story, here is an entertaining book about the world’s scariest number. Uncovers the history, psychology & evolution of unlucky 13. But this is also a book about superstition in general -- why do people believe in superstitions, knowing them to be irrational? How & why do superstitions die out? Why is unlucky 13 the most universal superstition? This book reveals its origins, & also the myths surrounding them. When did unlucky Friday the 13th emerge & why? Which is the only N.Y. hotel to have a 13th floor? What was the Thirteen Club & why did it take London & N.Y. by storm? What famous person had a deep-rooted phobia of 13, & who was fond of this number? What is the future of this odd superstition?
