1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful user experience, 17 April 2013
If you want to use this game you will be FORCED to download it through Steam. Unless you have a super fast connection it will take hours and hours. I can't see why they package two installation discs, they are useless. The Command line fix I've seen on another review simply doesn't work.

I don't actually know if the game is any good because its is still downloading but now I don't care. I am so angry with the inconvenience of the installation process that I will never buy any game that requires Steam again. If that means I buy no more games, then so be it. I am not rewarding them for messing me about.

The stupidity is that all steam does is to inconvenience real… Read more

Successful Betfair trading requires some knowledge/indication of the future direction of prices. The strategies outlined in this book are based upon using Weight of Money (WOM) to determine future price direction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Leave this alone, 10 Dec 2012
I started reading this and thought I was was experiencing deja vu. Then I realised why. Its just "Lay Back and Think of Winning" with a different title. The first five chapters are the same and I didn't bother to look any further.

That old book is useless today because markets have evolved, you can't just trade with the weight of money anymore, you'll lose your shirt. Seven years ago you might have been able to get away with it but not any more.

I feel really cheated by this attempt to repackage outdated, 7 year old tripe and pretend that its new.

Leave this book well alone, it is useless.
