As Luck Would Have It: Incredible Stories From Lottery Wins to Lightning Strikes
Joshua Piven (au). Here are dozens of people with tremendously compelling stories of triumph (or misfortune), seemingly against all odds & logic. When they were asked what they had in common, their answer was: good luck, or not enough of it. Here is a fascinating survey of this phenomenon, presented through first-person stories: the winner of a $180 million lottery; the woman who survived a plane crash at sea; the teller who was struck by lightning while at his window inside the bank; the guy who invented the Pet Rock. Weaves the subjects’ own beliefs about their experiences with research on chance, probability, & luck psychol. Includes res. on how to prepare for luck, how to deal with it when it arrives, & how to make the choices that will help us benefit from luck.
