What if being lucky was a skill that you could master and share with other people?


Modern life can feel like an endless sequence of cancelled plans, last-minute meetings and delayed journeys. So how can we use unpredictability to our advantage? LSE and NYU academic Dr Christian Busch has spent a decade exploring how, if acted upon, unexpected encounters can enhance our worldview, expand our social circles and create new professional opportunities. In this book, he reveals the secrets behind the hidden force that rules the universe: serendipity.

From social mobility in Sub-Saharan Africa to accidental energy-saving multinationals in the West, he has studied hundreds of subjects internationally who improved their lives by learning to see opportunities in the unexpected. We meet people from all backgrounds, from couples who first interacted during chance encounters to businesspeople who invented multi-million ideas after a best-laid plan misfired, learning the fundamental common denominators among lucky people.

The Serendipity Mindset is a revolutionary exploration of a well-researched and essential life skill that we can all develop in a few simple steps. By learning to identify, act on and share it, we can use uncertainty as a pathway to more joyful, purposeful and successful lives.
