Everyone's heard that old story about how most lottery winners go broke within a few years after winning millions. This book explains the whole twisted industry from the inside out.

The most interesting part is how the sales culture is as messed up as the lottery winners.

Excellent casual read if you like exploring the underbelly of society from an insider's view. Rarely do we get to see the seedy side of an industry in this detail.
