    save your time and don't read

    Catchy Title.. No information inside. The author pens enough words but unfortunately does not give any helpful information to a sweeper that is looking for winning ways. Save your money, consider not buying the book a prize.

    Less than what I expected

    While this book does provide some useful tips and information, I guess I was expecting a little more insight. The author's manner of writting is as if he were talking to you one on one and while that's good it also means that come away with the feeling of 'that's it?'. It's a decent book but I don't think it's worth the 14 dollars. I'd recommend looking it up at your local library or borrowing from someone or even get a used copy. It'll only take about a day to read and there's not much reference material that you'd be interested in going back to after you've read it.

    I Loved This Book!!!!!!

    After I read this I had so much positive energy. I did exactly what this book told me to do and I won a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Because of this book, I have had the best time of my life. Now entering sweepstakes is one of my favorite hobbies. I can't wait to win again.
