"I once wrote that most of my best research ideas came about simply 'because I happened to be at the right place at the right time.' This book points out that more than dumb luck may have been involved; Krumboltz & Levin show how successful people often are adept at putting themselves in the right place at the right time--and then follow through by behaving in ways that take full advantage of that initial good fortune.&rdquot;
--Elliott Aronson, author, The Social Animal and The Jigsaw Classroom
"The student who runs out of money before graduating from college, the mid-career engineer who gets caught in corporate downsizing and the recently divorced single parent are likely to believe that their 'luck' has run out. Yet they could be on the edge of a career and life breakthrough if only they can see the value in seemingly random events. Dr. John Krumboltz and Dr. Al S. Levin combine the wisdom of their distinguished work in career development for people like that, who need what's found in Luck Is No Accident."
--The Master's Advocate, October-November 2009
"...a practical guide to adapting to (life's) many twists and turns... This book celebrates unpredictability and teaches us to love it and live happily with life's 'surprises'... that adaptations to the unexpected, the willingness to risk, and the resilience after failure are at the core of every successful career. The many inspiring stories and principles in this book show that our lives are totally unpredictable, yet, paradoxically, within our control, when we take advantage of unforeseen encounters and events."
--Howard Figler, co-author, The Career Counselor's Handbook, , author, The Complete Job-Search Handbook
"...a guide to being prepared for when life throws wrenches at your plans, and how to turn a surprise into a full-fledged opportunity...plenty of tips for meeting (surprises) head on...a very useful read for those who want to be prepared for their big break."
--The Midwest Book Review, California Bookwatch: November 2010
