Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Just for fun comes this browsable guide that explains why certain things are considered lucky and how to partake of their real or imagined power. Trustees for the Society for Fortuitous Events, Aaronson and Kwan have studied the many facets of luck, from lucky charms to auspicious gardening. They list lucky foods to eat on New Year's Eve, such as pork in Austria and lasagna in Sicily, and relate what color underwear one should sport to the casino. Patrons will enjoy this book and share it with friends. For all libraries.
—Deborah Bigelow

    A Real Winner

    This is not only a cute and amusing book, but a great book for a gift. Filled with all sorts of information...supersticious and factual. It is such an entertaining read. I really do recommend it for gift giving. So unusual. So much better than the Xmas candle you usually give.
