But the issue I have is that this is really poorly written. I imagine that the writer interviewed these subjects and then simply went chronologically through the interview and turned it into prose rather than organizing the stories and thoughts in any way at all. Stories skipped around completely at random and rambled to the point of being excruciatingly boring. It was like reading student essays or teenage blogs. "The day I won the lottery, then 15 years in the past, then 1 year after winning, then back to the day they won, then 5 years after winning" but all completely at random, not for any effect. He interviewed winners who rambled about their experiences and then he wrote down their ramblings without finessing them at all or knowing where to edit.
As a side note, I think it's interesting that all the winners seemed to go out of their way to make themselves seem likeable and normal. It seems that when people win they feel the need to justify it to other people, whether because they were hardworking, needy, sick, or nice or whatever... It comes across as obnoxious. The obnoxiousness is more interesting than any of the stories themselves, though. The stories are mostly really boring. It's probably hard to find a winner who will actually TELL ALL instead of editing themselves to be more likeable.
I gave it three stars because it was only 99 cents. For that price, it's okay. The stories were at least unique from others I've found online, which is something.
Many are the horror stories of lottery winners ending up poor after spending through their money in a short period of time. You won't find them here. These winners, though of average intelligence, were SMART in their handling of money and in using it to benefit others as well as themselves.
This book is a "quick read" and well worth the short amount of time you'll take to enjoy the vignettes of these winners--in money, and in life.
Rather I found it to be "water down", hard to read, not catching to my attention and by a third of the book it had lost me and I had lost interest.
The stories are upbeat and easy to read first thing in the morning. Thank You. Martin Brucker
