New York Times bestselling author Janice Kaplan examines the everyday phenomenon of luck: how it works, who's luckiest and why, and the best ways to boost our own chances of fortune.

After spending a year researching and basing her life around gratitude for The Gratitude Diaries, Janice Kaplan is back to tackle another big, mysterious influence in all our lives: luck. And this time she's joined by a coauthor, Dr. Barnaby Marsh, an Oxford PhD who studies Risk and Decision Making.

Together, the two answer questions such as: What factors led a young, struggling Harrison Ford to a chance encounter with fledgling director George Lucas? What distinguishes pure randomness from luck? And, perhaps most important, how can all of us help tip those scales in our own favor? Using originial research and fascinating studies that revealed suprising results--like how risk-taking behaivor changes with age (surprisingly, people take just as many if not more risks)--and how an Australian investor found out a new, scientific way to play the lottery that won a group twenty-seven million dollars.

Through a mix of scientific research, interviews with famous and successful people, and powerful narrative, How Luck Happens points toward the answers in accessible and entertaining style. Download and start listening now!
