""When you believe in things that you don't understand/ Then you suffer/ superstition ain't the way," counselled Mr Stevie Wonder. But Recipes For Good Luck by Ms Ellen Weinstein, a new book that collects "the superstitions, rituals and practises of extraordinary people", suggests that you can prosper while holding unfounded and often frankly bizarre beliefs."
