“Racing Post fans will enjoy it, and Pricewise fans will love it. However, can’t give it a higher rating”
Review: The Secrets of Pricewise Revealed
Overall rating: 6/10
Pricewise readers will love this book; however, they’re unlikely to learn anything new. James Milton takes a look at the Racing Post Column Pricewise and explores how it became so successful. It’s interesting to read through the thoughts of Tom Segal – especially what he goes through on a daily basis.
As we all know, the bettering industry has changed a lot since the start of Pricewise and with the betting exchanges becoming even more popular year-on-year; you get a sense that this book is possibly past it’s sell-by date now. The betting game has moved on.
We give this book a 6/10 because Racing Post fans will enjoy it, and Pricewise fans will love it. However, can’t give it a higher rating because you won’t learn anything from his book. It just gives a look into the life of a newspaper tipster and although that is interesting; there are a lot of better books to read if you’re looking to learn about the betting industry.
- A detailed look into the daily life of a tipster
- An entertaining read for Pricewise/Racing Post fans
- The title is very misleading; there are no secrets revealed
- You won’t learn anything from this book
- It’s a little padded out and too high in praise (although understandably) for Tom Segal
This Book is Recommended For…
We can only recommend this book for Pricewise fans. If you love getting the Racing Post and back all of Pricewise tips’ then you will really enjoy this book. However, if you’re just an average punter and you’re looking to learn more about betting, then this isn’t the book for you. Your time is better spent on more educational books.
It’s interesting to note that Tom Segal actually admits that he has to tip in certain races even though he doesn’t really fancy the bet strongly. That’s the life of a tipster however it is exactly a very professional stance to take for anyone betting at home – you will need more discipline than that. If you’re not a Racing Post fan, don’t read this book.
