Dr. Barnaby Marsh and author Janice Kaplan uncover the unexpected, little-understood science behind what we call luck, proving that many seemingly random events are actually under your — and everyone’s — control.
By examining the factors that have made people and businesses successful, they reveal some techniques everyone can use to create luck in love and marriage, business and career, and health, happiness, and family relationships.
