...it requires more than a modest inferential leap to connect the Roman Emperor Constantine’s sighting of a meteor in the fourth century with the survival and flourishing of Christianity. A fun and engaging meditation on the flukiness of history.

Synopsis

THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT... would be radically different were it not for the role that accidents, chance, and pure luck have played throughout history. Each chapter of "Serendipity" sets a pivotal event in its historical context and raises the question of how chance may have changed our world on both a global and personal level in this fascinating mix of significant events and pop culture.
