“In a world where random events increasingly rule our destinies, forget logic. Invite chance, then maximize it. With highly engaging and enter­taining style, Frans Johansson shows us how.”
—Peter Sims, author of Little Bets
 
“Johansson wonderfully captures the strategy of any startup . . . maxi­mizing click moments and, through them, ideas that change the world forever.”
—Eric Klinker, CEO of BitTorrent
“Frans Johansson is both a master storyteller and one of the most inno­vative thinkers I know. The Click Moment begins as a shocker, showing that we can’t really predict much in a world that is becoming increasingly complex. Then, after shattering our illusions of control, Johansson gives us powerful tools for placing good bets in business, in everyday life, and even in love.”
—Teresa Amabile, Edsel Bryant Ford Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, and coauthor of The Progress Principle
“With his characteristic clarity, insight, and style, Frans Johansson presents an absorbing account of how randomness, serendipity, and “luck” can be used to enhance success in business and in your own life. A fascinating plunge into the rip tides and cross currents of chance and opportunity that so often affect the course of human achievement.”
—Sir Ken Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of The Element
 
“There are very few moments that change the direction of our lives, orga­nizations, and even entire nations. Frans Johansson has created another amazingly practical book that shows us, in a natural, fast-paced, and enjoyable way, how to not only create more of these moments but also how to harness them.”
—Dr. Jamil Mahuad, former mayor of Quito and president of Ecuador, cofounder of the Harvard International Negotiation Program
“We live in a world where we always want to stay connected and in control, and The Click Moment reveals how this mind-set is stifling innovation. Frans Johansson shows the reader not only how to capture inspiration but to change the world.”
—Marcus Samuelsson, chef; owner of Red Rooster; author of Yes, Chef; and cofounder of FoodRepublic.com

The problem I have with those books is that, while the information may be sound, they ignore the multitudes of unknown failures... companies, ideas, and decisions that *didn't* …
