From Publishers Weekly
This charming, easy-to read volume explains the difference between luck, which "doesnt last long, because it does not depend on you" and Good Luck, which "is created by each of us: thats why it lasts forever." In friendly, fairy tale style, the authors tell a story of two knights seeking to find a magic four-leaf clover in an enchanted forest, and along the way impart wisdom about making ones own luck. The allegory is peppered with "Rules of Good Luck" and other mantras that managemost of the timeto ring true. The knight who makes his own luck and ultimately succeeds, of course, is the one who sees obstacles and challenges, not insurmountable impediments, and who works to overcome them intelligently. He creates new conditions, seeks to help others, is unafraid to take action, doesnt give up and realizes that opportunity is always out there. The story is inspiring, and a series of quotes from celebrities and sages near the end reinforces the idea that success comes from learning how to make ones own luck.
