A charming, beautifully designed inventory of the world’s best-known superstitions—with good advice on how to avoid bad luck. Misfortune, unfortunate occurrences, unfavorable outcomes, bad luck: whatever you call it, almost everyone has cursed it at some point. Edward Gorey-esque in design and drawing from common folklore, Guide for the Unlucky is a charming interactive book that outlines the origin of the best-known unlucky charms—a broken mirror, a black cat crossing in front of you, an incorrectly buttoned shirt, cracks in the sidewalk, an inverted horseshoe—and how to avoid incurring misfortune from them. For example, viewing a new moon through a pane of glass or over your left shoulder was considered to be unlucky as early as 1830, and the remedies to reverse this luck included "turning all the silver in your pockets." Designer Kyle Bean’s unique pop-engineering and sensitivity to design presents the material with a fresh perspective. Equal parts wry, informative, and visually appealing, Guide for the Unlucky is a wonderfully artful gift for the person who could use a little help with their luck.

Have you ever wondered what leads to success. Do you just need to be smart, great looking, or lucky? Richard St. John says those things dont lead to success. And he should know. He spent 10 years interviewing over 500 successful people, from Martha Stewart, to actor Russell Crowe, to DNA discoverer James Watson, to the top people in many fields. After analyzing and sorting all the information, Richard discovered the top 8 factors that are the foundation for success in any field. He also discovered that many successful people aren't especially smart, good-looking, or lucky. They're ordinary people, without special gifts, who achieve success by following the8 factors. Richard himself is a good example. He says, "I could never figure o ut how an ordinary guy like me succeeded in business, won top awards and became a millionaire. So I started a project to ask other people what led to their success, and it grew into a 10-year journey of discovery." The story is in Richards new book, Stupid, Ugly, Unlucky and RICH Spikes Guide to Success, an easy-to-read analysis that gets beyond the clichés to distill what the worlds most successful people really do have in common.
