Novice interest only - Punters Beware,
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lay,Back and Think of Winning: Guaranteed Winning Systems for the Betting Exchange (Paperback)
This is not a book for punters who already are using betting exchanges - nor is it a book for sports punters.
The author is almost exclusively focused on horse racing (90%), and explaining the basics of so-called "systems" in a manner that is aimed at novice punters.
He comes up with a series of cutesy names like the "HOOF" the "Take On" and the "Double Take On" but really it's pretty obvious stuff.
There are a series of carefully worked examples that show you how you can make money by LAYING losing horses and BACKING winning horses and how to make money when the market moves your way. Pick winners!! That's how you make money!! Gosh!!
As a basic primer in using exchanges for horse racing, and a list of internet sites for information ... then this book is OK. But it goes nowhere near even living up to it's title.
If you are already a punter then don't buy this book - find a mate who already has - I'm sure he'll be happy to lend it to you for a long time - or sell it for a quid (which is probably it's real market value).
This one will be in the "bargain basement bin" by Xmas time ... and being recycled as firelighters by next Christmas.
