Publisher's Summary

Why do some people lead happy, successful lives whilst others face repeated failure and sadness? Why do some find their perfect partners whilst others stagger from one broken relationship to the next? What enables some people to have successful careers whilst others find themselves trapped in jobs they detest? And can unlucky people do anything to improve their luck - and lives?
Ten years ago, Professor Richard Wiseman decided to search for the elusive luck factor by investigating the actual beliefs and experiences of lucky and unlucky people. The results reveal a radical new way of looking at luck.
In this audiobook Wiseman identifies the four simple behavioural techniques that have been scientifically proven to help you attract good fortune. He then shows how you can use these methods to revolutionise every area of your life - including your relationships, personal finances and career.

Rings True

Full of valuable information that is not only useful, but inspirational. it's so good to be able to see why some aspects of my life have been 'lucky' while other aspects 'unlucky'. The book really makes sense.

A short paragraph of common sense padded out .

A short paragraph of common sense padded out with woo, a lot of self promotion and '100's of scientific studies' which in reality seems to be only a few flakey and fake sounding people mentioned over and over again. Wiseman is the master magician, putting on a show with little substance when you examine it too closely .

A great book

A very interesting look into the topic of luck. Scientific research suggests that there is a lot more to good or bad luck than by just chance. I highly recommend this book to anybody wanting to improve their lives
