Myerson's moral luck

Myerson herself could not have known whether the book would have succeeded sufficiently. Had it not been as good, the same reviewers may well have condemned her. Of course, the reviewers and commentators probably haven’t thought this luck element through fully, and many probably don’t realise that the logical conclusion of the vindication of Myerson on account of her book’s qualities is that they accept the reality of moral luck.
