The Good Luck Book By Heather Alexander

the book cover for The Good Luck Book

“As the world has changed, a lot of old superstitions, beliefs, and traditions have been tossed aside. Yet many continue to hang around.”

From how to wear your clothes to the weather to various animals- cultures all over the world have superstitions about all sorts of things. Did you know that if you flush one ice cube down the toilet, you are asking for an inch of snow? Does your family tend to argue a lot? Perhaps you have a spiky plant like a cactus inside your home. If you move it to the entryway or window it will act as a protector instead of inviting family arguments. The Good Luck Book is a great fun read and its headings make it easily browsable if you want to skip around instead of reading straight through.

The superstitions are diverse both in type and where they originate from. The book does offer possible theories on how a few of the superstitions got started. The author’s note talks about the amount of research that went into the book, but no sources are listed anywhere. The lack of sources and overall context make it less useful for a research project, but fans of trivia books will find this title a great way to pass the time. Just remember, it all in good fun and it is the reader that has “the power to decide what you believe and what you don’t, what you let scare you and what you don’t, what wishes you send out into the universe, and – most of all- what kind of luck you bring to yourself and the people around you.” So don’t let the yo-yos or black cats bring you down and make as many wishes in as many ways as you want!
