A remarkable tale,
This review is from: You Bet: The Betfair Story and How Two Men Changed the World of Gambling (Hardcover)
I am not accustomed to betting, and am not particularly interested in the topic. At least, that was what I thought until I read this utterly absorbing and engaging account of that world. I have read other sporting books written by Colin Cameron and he manages to make each topic about which he writes come to life with his descriptions of the quirky and driven characters who inhabit the particular world, whether it be soccer, horse racing or now gaming. This is a book which will fascinate you, appall you and make you laugh out loud in equal measure. But more than that it will move you to get off your backside and follow your dreams.If you do so, maybe like the protagonists in this beautifully reserached book, they will come true after all. Highly recommended.
