Useful companion that tells it like it is, 11 Jan 2005
As an enlightening introduction to betting exchange punting this is a well set out publication. The formative chapters pay much attention to the thrills of horse racing, the game of luck and chance, and the need for punters to have the opportunity to offset bets if they are to make them truly safe. This is where betting exchanges come in, allowing the bettor to place and lay a bet, which as the author explains opens up some interesting opportunities.
I thought the lay out and explanations were succinct and well delivered. My only disappointment was that not enough pages were devoted to sports such as golf or grand prix racing or, indeed, the financial markets, which I believe many readers would find interesting. As one who trades modestly and for pleasure more than serious profit, I welcomed the advice and enjoyed the personable style the author manages to sustain, at least most of the time.
