The frustrating component of life known as Murphy's (orSod's) Law is no respecter of persons.

The more you aredesperate for things to go right, the more they go wrong.

But,is that really the case, and, if so, is there a rational explanation?So: when you drop the toast how do you know it will landbutter-side down?

Why does the queue you're in always goslowest? That tune you hate - isn't it the one you can't get outof your head?

However odd it seems, there is generally ascientific explanation.

Much of Murphy's Law stems from theway the mind works - its physical limitations, evolutionarybiases and social impressionability.

In this fascinating book,popular-science presenter Richard Robinson teases out theanswers, accessibly and entertainingly.
