The veteran author, editor, and TV producer sounds immensely competent in this motivating look at every aspect of luck. Her confidence and clear narration are perfect vehicles for sharing the fruits of her collaboration with psychology and economics researcher Barnaby Marsh. Luck is more than a winning lottery ticket, and it never stands alone: To be effective, luck needs your talent and hard work, and it needs you to recognize it when it sneaks up on you in the form of chance events and opportunities. Sharing little-known research on the interplay of luck and personal achievement, Kaplan and Marsh also interview various celebrities who seem lucky but actually are people who prepared for good luck, connected to the right people, and recognized luck when it landed in front of them.
