Research Scholar Robert Frank's book, "Success and Luck," is mentioned
— May 5, 2016
Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "In his latest book, 'Success and Luck: Good Fortune and the Myth of Meritocracy,' he discusses how underappreciated the role of random chance is in our lives. Successful people tend to credit their skill, hard work and intelligence for their fortunate outcomes. Frank points out that for every big winner, there are scores of people who are as skilled, hard-working and intelligent, but came in just behind. The lack of a lucky break can be the difference between wild success and a near miss or worse."
