Dance With Chance

Making Luck Work for You

Spyros G. Makridakis Robin M. Hogarth Anil Gaba

A gripping tale of how even experts misread the role of chance – from the stock market to doctors’ surgeries – "Dance With Chance" argues that we all fall foul of the ‘The Illusion of Control’, meaning that we underestimate the role of luck in our lives. The authors argue that by understanding how uncertainty operates, we can make palpable improvements to our health, wealth, happiness and careers.
