Reviews

"Mr. Rescher is surely on to something: what could be more fascinating--and yet so little understood--than luck? . . . Using the tools of conceptual analysis and explanation, Mr. Rescher clarifies a great deal about the baffling phenomenon, all the while insuring that we do not forget the utter randomness and unpredictability of luck's superb surprise."
--New York Times Book Review
