Rayleigh, England (PRWEB) February 07, 2014
In the years since off-course betting was legalized, the bookmaking industry has enjoyed a fruitful existence mainly on the goodwill of its hard-pressed workforce, according to Anthony. “On reading the book, I expect betting shop readers to recognize the events and others to feel they have learned something about a mysterious business!”
An excerpt from “Making The Book Pay!”:
“Among such entrepreneurs were two giants – Romulus and Remus. These legends of the bookmaking world compared easily with the Amundsuns and the Scotts of the start of the 20th century. These guys were not born with the proverbial silver spoons in the mouth – for them it was hard graft! They were single minded, tough, determined individuals – the stuff that empire builders are made of! Their small acorns grew to massive oak trees – so large, they employed, thousands! And they did all this by making the book pay!”
Accessible and easy to read, “Making The Book Pay!” is a refreshing mix of history and humor that fully explains the technical aspects of the betting industry.
“Making The Book Pay!” will be a featured title at the 2014 London Book Fair, held April 8-10.
