Bets and the City: Sally Nicoll's spread betting diary
Bets and the City: Sally Nicoll's spread betting diary
by Sally Nicoll
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth buying, 7 Jun. 2007
This is a great book, I read it over two days, I couldn't put it down. I have been spreadbetting for a few years and I've read loads of books on trading but I still learnt something from Bets and the City.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you need inspiration to get off the sofa - buy this book, 21 Feb. 2007
I bought this book as a birthday present for my brother (who's sort of into running). I thought I'd have a quick read of it before I gave it to him. I couldn't put this book down - this bloke is immense (and funny), he's pushed his body to it's limits and beyond. A word of warning about the author, he's doesn't seem to need much sleep and is blessed with an abundance of energy. I used to be fairly fit and active years ago before I got married. I raced Triathlon's for a couple of years and even finished the Lanzarote Ironman. I never did enjoy running training but since reading this book, I've run twice, back-to-back this week and I will get away from my computer this summer and race again (first time in 8 yrs). Hopefully this explains a bit about the books contents and the effect it's had on me. Long distance sport is all about what's 'in your head' and making sacrifices in our daily lives.
