Country music legend Kenny Rogers teams up with Spur Award–winning author Mike Blakely for a rousing tale set in the heyday of Nashville in What Are the Chances. It's 1975, and Ronnie Breed's chart-topping rock band has just self-destructed in a recording studio fistfight. Ronnie makes a bold decision—return home to Texas and reinvent himself as a solo act. Enter Dan Campbell, Ronnie's cousin, who recruits Ronnie for a new kind of venture. Dan, who always had a penchant for wild schemes, wants to televise a Texas Hold 'Em tournament...and Ronnie could never say no to his cousin Dan. As celebrity spokesman for the poker tournament, Ronnie soon finds himself recruiting world-class gamblers in illegal card games while trying to put together a new country band and win a Nashville recording contract—not to mention trying to avoid falling head-over-heels in love with his new manager, Dorothy. But when things start to get weird—hidden cameras, secret high-stakes side-bets, a visit from the FBI—it seems that Dan's poker tournament may be a façade for something much bigger and much more dangerous. Ronnie begins to wonder if he will end up with the girl of his dreams in the Country Music Hall of Fame, or broke and lonely in some prison cell. What are the chances?

To recount some of the vicissitudes of life, be they little or big, welcomed or unwanted, funny or a cliff hanger in which the consequences can only be explained as a result of divine interference, not luck and certainly not by chance.

Do you believe life happens by chance, by coincidence, or perhaps it’s just plain luck? The truth is that God has a plan for your life. “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV). He cares for you and desires to be in relationship with you. Read the stories of some who had reason to doubt. As they trusted God, He met their need. Like others, there may be times in your life when the pain you feel causes you to want to run away or possibly hide from reality. You will learn that you cannot run far enough, nor hide well enough to escape. It is often at that very critical, life changing point in life that our Heavenly Father softens hearts and encourages people to reach out to Him. Don’t rely on chance; rely on God. Reach out to the one who has a plan for you. He has been there, waiting all the while; waiting for you to trust Him!

Bill, who had endured enough of his mundane nine-to-five existence, was looking for a change. Sharon thought she had it all, until she met Bill. The unlikely meeting of these two adventure seekers led to a thrilling journey through sixtythree countries on six continents around the world. Their amazing ride of a lifetime covered 103,000 miles on two motorcycles and culminated in a surprise ending to their incredible two-year odyssey. The couple withstood days of pouring rain, cold that numbed their extremities, heat that boiled the oil in their engines, and intense periods of fear and uncertainty. Facing the unknown each day of their lives, they encountered a charging elephant in Tanzania, were nearly drowned in the Zambezi River, survived heatstroke, thieves and an active volcano. However, their discoveries about each other and the world around them led to the ultimate achievements: freedom, romance, and the fulfillment of lifelong dreams. Bill and Sharon lived in Pennsylvania before setting off on their round-the-world adventure. Bill owned a bicycle shop in Ephrata for eleven years and started riding motorcycles when he was sixteen, taking his first major motorcycle trip to Alaska in 1973 astride a Triumph Daytona. Sharon is a former third grade teacher and owner of a professional pet sitting business. The travel bug bit her early in life; she was born in Germany and lived in twenty-three places before she was the age of thirty. She bought her first motorcycle at age fifty and began her trip around the world one year later. Sharon and Bill sold all their belongings, their homes and businesses to finance their trip; then wandered aimlessly when they arrived back in the United States two years later, wondering what to do next. They ended up in North Carolina where they now live with four cats and five motorcycles.

Most of us, no matter how rational we think we are, have a lucky charm, a good-luck ritual, or some other custom we follow in the hope that it will lead to a good result. Is the idea of luckiness just a way in which we try to impose order on chaos? Do we live in a world of flukes and coincidences, good and bad breaks, with outcomes as random as a roll of the dice—or can our beliefs help change our luck? What Are the Chances? reveals how psychology and neuroscience explain the significance of the idea of luck. Barbara Blatchley explores how people react to random events in a range of circumstances, examining the evidence that the belief in luck helps us cope with a lack of control. She tells the stories of lucky and unlucky people—winning the lottery multiple times, surviving seven brushes with death, finding an apparently cursed Neanderthal mummy—as well as the accidental discoveries that fundamentally changed what we know about the brain. Blatchley considers our frequent misunderstanding of randomness, the history of luckiness in different cultures and religions, the surprising benefits of magical thinking, and many other topics. Offering a new view of how the brain handles the unexpected, What Are the Chances? shows why an arguably irrational belief can—fingers crossed—help us as we struggle with an unpredictable world.

It is true, that but for him who borrows, and risks, and labors, the world would hardly move forward. It is equally true, that if there were no borrowers, there would be no profit to the lenders. Being so essential to each other, both are essential to the world's progress. But the world would be happier if he who borrowed did so more carefully; realized his danger more acutely, and risked less for his own sake, as well as for the sake of him who lends.-from "The Elements of Success"The diverse career of Canadian-American businessman and journalist ERASTUS WIMAN (1834-1904) encompassed a stint as a reporter for the newspaper the Toronto Globe, the presidency Canada's Great Northwestern telegraph company and later of the Staten Island Rapid Transit railroad, and a successful campaign to eliminate imprisonment for debtors in New York State. In 1893, he shared the fruits of his long, wide experience in this collection of essays on business, society, and living a successful life.In a charmingly rambling style, Wiman steps forward as an advocate for such assorted issues as a close commercial union between Canada and the United States, and the arrival of women into the white-collar workplace. He discusses everything from the dramatic influence of electricity on industry and the power of the housing market to transform an economy to the business lessons to be learned from Buffalo Bill to man's place as a parasite of the cow. An extraordinary work by a uniquely influential and knowledgeable character, this is full of surprising and delightful insight.
