This was originally entitled "Living the Dream", in which Dave chronicled his attempt to win £1 million in the six month period between the Lincoln and the St Leger. He failed - that's why it's called "No Easy Money". No shame in that; but there is in offering this dull book. A lot of the text is padded with race reports. It's like reading old copies of the Racing Post. There is also the sound of pockets talking, the smell of burnt fingers and the taste of sour grapes.

Difficult to say anything new here. I thoroughly enjoyed Daves first book and this one was no exception, easy reading and hard to put down. Wonder if the 'big life changing win' accumulator ever came in for Dave..?!

One things for sure if you haven't read this book you haven't missed out,there is absolutely nothing of interest to the average punter.This has got to be one of the worst racing books ever written.
From a man who is supposed to be a legendary party animal,this is boring old tripe with no story, no humour,no nothing. It's like reading a year old copy of the racing post. Forget it!

Format: Hardcover
The really enjoyable thing about Nevison's punting memoirs (the first, A Bloody Good Winner, was better) is the vicarious thrill of reading about someone who has truly big bets, who likes to make a lot of wagers and is prepared to come back time and again without his confidence being dented. He is not one of these pro gramblers who comes over glacial and conceited. This is what makes his books readable and and even re-readable. Of course, Dave does whatever he does to make money and no other reason, hence the book being an only slightly unnecessary sequel. Nevertheless, any window into Nevison's approach is worth reading. The stuff about boozing and partying is fun enough and it's nice to see a wealthy punter knocking the lager back and eating his way round the curry houses of Britain. Compare Nevison's two books with Patrick Veitch's misleadingly named misery memoir, and Nevison comes out on top resoundlingly. Veitch's publishers could probably be sued under trade description for the tricky title: Secrets of a professional punter. Yes, there are secrets but not about how he took £10m off the bookies!

Clone of the first book, just an account of events with no real insight, will not purchase another in this format.

This is Daves follow up book and is another fine read. It takes you into Daves life day in day out and how he tries to get one over the old enemy the bookie. dave is an honest chap and tell it as it is with some very painful losses as well as his good days. He also explains how times are changing and how he himself is having to evolve to try and stay in the game. If any of you are thinking about being a full time pro then reading this is a must. As Dave says NO EASY MONEY.

Format: Hardcover
I read Dave Nevison's first book and was left wanting more of the same. This is mainly what I got with this. Other reviewers say they didn't learn anything from it - well I did. His thoughts about Betfair and how it's going were very interesting. But more than anything I like being in the mind of a pro. gambler like Nevison. How he takes the ups and downs and his almost suicidal (betting wise) pursuit of the Jackpots and Scoops which make him come out an overall loser in the end.
If other reviewers thought there was no humour in it what about one of his wenches ordering her steak 'fanny pink', the book is full of amusing asides. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next one.
