Once upon a time there was a swimming pool repairman who only had a hundred-dollar bill to pay for a hot dog. He requested his change in lottery tickets and subsequently won $180 million. Strange, but wonderfully true. In this insightful, thoroughly entertaining book, countless similar case studies of "as luck would have it" situations are presented. Interweaving the subjects' own beliefs about their experiences with compelling research on chance, probability, and luck psychology, As Luck Would Have It also includes research on how to prepare for luck, how to deal with it when it arrives, and how to make the choices that will be most beneficial.
