Esteemed business school professors and renowned marketing consultants Alex Rovira and Fernando TrIas De Bes have advised such multinational corporations as Bayer, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, Pepsi, and Sony. Written to counter the belief in blind chance, this international best-seller is a simple yet profound fable that teaches us to stop waiting for good luck but to start cultivating the conditions that make success possible. As childhood friends enjoy a chance meeting after 50 years, one of them tells the old story that led to his success. The enchanting parable that follows combines a dash of fairy-tale lore with a poof of Merlin's wizardry as knights search for the elusive four-leaf clover that generates limitless luck. With this delightful tale reminiscent of Antoine de Saint-ExupEry's The Little Prince, listeners can reap the results of Rovira and De Bes' four-year study of successful people and discover the five characteristics and 10 rules of good luck

"These professors and marketing consultants say that good luck requires determination, sharing, planning, and timely effort. The narrative describes two long lost friends in their sixties who discuss the story of several knights who improbably look for a four-leaf clover in a large forest. Only one of the knights chooses to be the cause of his good luck by creating the conditions in the forest for the clover to grow. Richard Poe's impressive vocal talent is put to good use in this brief and dramatic audio. On top of flawless microphone work, he applies emotional depth to the parable's characters, and to every facet of the authors' timeless advice. A sublime and memorable performance. T.W.
