9780025465800: The luck factor: Why some people are luckier than others and how you can become one of them

Taking us on a richly anecdotal ride through the more popular theories and historic instances of luck, Max Gunther unearths the 5 traits lucky people have in common - and which can change your luck: The Spiderweb Structure - The luckiest men and women are those who take the trouble to form a great many friendly contacts with other people. The Hunching Skill - Lucky people have the capacity to generate accurate hunches, and then to trust them and act on them. Audentes Fortuna Juvat - Boldness seems to create good luck. As a group, lucky people tend to be bold people. The Ratchet Effect - Lucky people typically seem to know how to discard bad luck before it becomes worse luck. The Pessimism Paradox - Lucky people are generally happy but never assume they are fortune's chosen ones. In fact, lucky people expect to be hit by bad luck - and prepare for it. This is a most compelling and readable book on the fascinating subject of luck. Come, change yours.
