100 Ways To Win a Tenner - Paul Zenon, 17 July 2003
OK, this is a book. But not your normal list of 'smartypants things you can do' or magic tricks kind of book, oh dear me no!
Here we draw on an earlier part of Paul's 'career' and, through the pages of this work of art, you will meet and greet various unnamed punters who are always going to lose a tenner a time for their further education in the Art of Scams etc. You will also meet Sid 'The Kid', cautious Jim, Mike, Smartarse Stan, great Uncle Harold, Bob the Belly, Gazza & Dave, Typhoon Ted the Pool expert, Keith and Einstein the Quiz Champions, Marilyn, cute but not too bright, Mickey, Fred the Football Freak, Dave & Baz, Gemma, and The Hulk - muscle bound and not quite as bright as Marilyn.
Split into five sections, Paul's book takes you on a tour of the finest scams, rigged bets and general 'good natured' cheating available. At the same time it's like a succession of good nights out at the pub and almost reads like a novel.
Out of the 100 scams, I'd already heard of no more than eight which means I either live an honest and sober life or I was ready to be scammed! If nothing else, this book will show you how easy it is to lose a tenner (or more!) to subtle psychology and clever wordings. Buy it, read it, memorise it. It could save you up to £1,000!
Value for Money: Worth far more than the price above!
