After the recent book Dreaming Ahead of Time by Gary Lachman, here is another book about serendipity and coincidence, but now not relating just to dreams. It explores the concept in all its aspects, including times when people have claimed a coincidence to advance their personal or political cause. It’s a more analytical book and explores the statistics and the theory more than entertains us with a succession of stories. But more importantly it also explains how synchronicity and serendipity can be agents for personal growth or social evolution, beyond having it make the world a more magical place. There are practical tips on how to write your own coincidence story or to relate to a wider community. And there are plenty of stories too!
