The Art and Science of Creating Good Luck

The Serendipity Mindset is a study of the rationale and science behind serendipity, the good fortune we can facilitate if we use the right muscles, and the interplay between planning and coincidence. 

In straight-forward, engaging language, the book will show readers how individuals, communities, and companies alike can cultivate serendipity and increase innovation and impact. As a self-help book grounded in cutting-edge science, it brings together the latest research in biology, chemistry, physics, management and information systems in a way that is both informative and accessible.

We’re living through times of potentially unsettling change; what better moment to leverage the seemingly-accidental into actual, quantifiable gains?
