Luck: A Fresh Look at Fortune
Ed Smith, an aspiring cricketer, used to think that luck was for other people. Like his childhood hero, Geoff Boycott, the young Ed believed that the successful sportsman made his own luck by an application of willpower and the elimination of error. But when a freak accident at Lord's prematurely ended his cricketing career, it changed everything, prompting him to look at his own life through the prism of luck. Tracing the history of luck and fortune, destiny and fate, from the ancient Greeks to the present day, he argues that the question of luck versus skill is as pertinent now as it ever has been.
