¿Title: Horse Racing: Gambling to Win
Author: Michael J. Haskett
Okay, so this is my first review for a non-fiction book. The writing in Horse Racing: Gambling to Win, written by Michael J. Haskett, was
easy enough to follow. The only problem I faced was that I didn't know several of the terms used in the book (I admit I don't gamble so
a lot of terms were unfamiliar to me.) For example, I had to look up what the difference is between betting at a regular track, OTB or
online. But other than that, I found this book to be an enjoyable read.
Everything in the book was straight-forward and I'm sure if you even understand just the most basic terms in horse racing betting, you
will find this book immensely helpful and easy to understand. There were also formulas provided to help determine how you should
bet. I thought that was a really good idea to include in the book since it can be directly applied. Haskett walks you through all the steps
with the formula, so math challenged people (like me) can easily follow along.
What I would've liked to see included in Horse Racing is a glossary for the terms new gamblers probably wouldn't have understood
had they picked up this book to read.
*Easy to understand (provided you know all the terms)
*very brief but gets to the point--there's no beating around the bush
¿ *Didn't have a glossery
