5.0 out of 5 stars Recomended
The subject of Form vs Value has always been divisive so this book will inevitably incur conflicting opinions. Make no mistake; this is an interesting book and it does reveal some very plausible strategies.
For such a complex subject the book is sympathetically written and works on a number of levels, I had no difficulty in understanding the details or procedures.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good value
Some ideas but very vague. Reminds me of a book called Betting Systems With A Pocket Calculator. The author makes it sound like his way of using prices and mathematics to 'get value' would work but only shows one example for each idea, then says you need to go over a good number of races to see if it works or not rather than showing he has done it over a good number of...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent !! (No quick fix system ), 23 Feb 2014

This review is from: Finding an Edge: Professional Value Betting Methods on Horse Racing (Paperback)
Absolutely love this book, although I can appreciate that it's not for everyone and certainly not for those new to betting.
Everything in here is based purely on mathematics with no attempt at form study at all - indeed the author makes the point that most form factors are now included in the odds on offer (particularly betfairs markets ) so he looks for other avenues to secure that most intangible of creatures " value". So for those of us who are poor form students and are also not privy to inside information this book is a little goldmine . Recommended !

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to date thinking, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finding an Edge: Professional Value Betting Methods on Horse Racing (Paperback)
A refreshing approach to winning that is thought provoking and interesting. Covers a number of areas I had previously considered but never found time to investigate further. The book concentrates exclusively on making a profit by identifying an element of value within the price. Could be a bit advanced for some novice bettors but this is one of the better books on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for e/w & on-course, 19 Mar 2013

This review is from: Finding an Edge: Professional Value Betting Methods on Horse Racing (Paperback)
Being an occasional each way backer I found the ew betting part of the book particularly helpful. The on course strategies are also worthy of a mention and look forward to testing those in the near future. Informative, relevant and includes examples.

5.0 out of 5 stars Logical Approach, 15 Nov 2012
This review is from: Finding an Edge: Professional Value Betting Methods on Horse Racing (Paperback)
An exceptional book that comes over as being genuine and honest; it provides readers with a logical approach to winning and should not be underestimeted.

Some ideas but very vague. Reminds me of a book called Betting Systems With A Pocket Calculator. The author makes it sound like his way of using prices and mathematics to 'get value' would work but only shows one example for each idea, then says you need to go over a good number of races to see if it works or not rather than showing he has done it over a good number of race himself, show you the results and prove it does work. I don't believe his methods have any solid base or foundation and in my opinion you won't be finding any value betting strategies with this book. I returned my copy after reading it in about an hour and a half and I don't return many items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers what it promises, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finding an Edge: Professional Value Betting Methods on Horse Racing (Paperback)
A rather unique book that is thought provoking, written in an easy to understand style with each section clearly marked. Contains plenty of useful information to help people improve their betting skills, the book is about obtaining value rather than how to pick more winners, i.e. obtaining 11/10 about either side on the toss of a coin would be the best analogy.

This review is from: Finding an Edge: Professional Value Betting Methods on Horse Racing (Paperback)
Was told about this book and wasn’t disappointed, written from a punters perspective rather than a journalist, it offers plenty of new ideas and contains tricks of the trade that may be useful to readers.
