Good but could have been greater.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
This is a good light book on luck but not in the category of Against the Gods or Fooled by Ranndomness. This is just a nice light read.
Would you recommend Luck to your friends? Why or why not?
Maybe--if they are novices. There are better books.
Any additional comments?
It could have been great if he could have incorporated more information. Also while it was nice to know about the game of cricket --- his autobiographical accounts were a little much.
