Abstract:

In a world where so much can be explained through science and rational thought, it's nice to know there's always a little something that escapes logic--and that no matter how educated we are, most of us still avoid walking under a ladder and feel a sense of dread when we break a mirror. But where and how did these strange ideas begin? From the curse of the lottery winners to the good feng shui of a local restaurant, this quirky, wacky, weird, and wonderful collection of superstitions uncovers the truth about some of our most familiar beliefs, as well as others that are much stranger. It turns out that everywhere in the world, people still put their trust in luck, magic, and mystery. By the end of this look at the bizarre world of illogic it's clear: superstition is alive and well and really spellbinding!
