Why March Is The Unluckiest Month Of All
What do Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan all have in common? HINT: They share the same fateful phenomenon that afflicted the Titanic, the Deepwater Horizon, Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Facility, the Exxon Valdez and so many more. From John Belushi to John Candy, Sharon Tate to Watergate, countless ill-fated pop stars, politicians and personalities also suffered tragically from this eerie link. Give up? They all fell victim to sudden, sick twists of epic bad luck during the third month of the year, sending them spinning off into catastrophic disaster — proof that March is, and always has been, the unluckiest month of all. Just ask Julius Caesar. About the Author From reporting a Coney Island beat to reviewing Manhattan nightlife to writing about Wall Street finance and Silicon Alley technology, Craig McGuire has covered a broad range of subjects as a New York-based journalist, editor, and communications specialist. A product of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and co-founder of Brooklyn Creative Partners, he is a lifelong resident of New York City where he lives with his wife and three children. What People Are Saying "In the compelling, exhaustively researched “Beyond the Ides,” Craig McGuire takes readers on a fascinating, thought-provoking journey that explores strange and mysterious connections associated with major historical events. Covering everything from assassinations and massacres to disasters and celebrity deaths, McGuire has created an engaging, gripping narrative that sheds new light on the concepts of fate and superstition. I will never look at the month of March in the same way again."  ~Robert Sales, NYC-based editor and the Author of Trading Strategies for Direct Access Traders  “Who knew what diabolical evils lurked in the third month of every calendar year? Craig McGuire painstakingly exhumes the ills of March in this fascinating read. Beyond the Ides is a disturbing, thought-provoking, and strangely gripping book.”  ~Ron Valdes, Editor and Co-Founder, Brooklyn Creative Partners "After reading "Beyond the Ides" by Craig McGuire, I will never feel the same way about March again. What a powerful, thought- provoking concept, explored in great detail. A must-read I highly recommend that you won't be able to put down. I know I couldn't."  ~Christi Shingara, NBC Universal "Craig McGuire's account is fascinating, intriguing, and most entertaining. The data jump out at you (the reader) stimulating one's neurotransmitters to the Nth degree. History and luck intertwine and weave as shown so deftly by Mr. McGuire's pen (and sword). Real life is indeed stranger and more interesting than fiction. McGuire's skill, literary wizardry, and talent in collating and presenting fascinating facts/happenings across a broad band of "earth/planet time" is unparalleled. His rendition and report of "March events" through the centuries leaves the reader in a delicious trance riddled with delirium and awe. Readers will no doubt clamor for more material from this gifted writer."  ~Christopher Bayer, Ph.D., "The Wall Street Psychologist" Author, Advocate & Public Speaker
