With so little out there to read, any book about lottery winners and related stories is a potential best seller. McNay, with a candid approach complete with humor and wit, portrays not only lottery winners but the entire business of the lottery in a way that all can follow. His stories about winners like Jack Whittaker, for example, highlight what can (and often does) happen to winners who let their hubris be their guide. Or the now broke celebrity (from his cameo spots on various lottery shows) David Lee Edwards and how he managed to fritter away $27,000,000 in less than 5 years.

McNay goes on to explain how the Big Win overwhelmed most folks, and how they failed to properly handle the money: from investing it to learning to handle those with their hands out wanting a piece of pie. McNay maintains the advice from years of advising not only lottery winners but those who have come into sudden wealth from other means, that the best thing to do is (for lottery winners) take yearly payments, and, of course remain anynomous. He avoids the more fawning, sensationalistic POV's of other 'winners' books. Reading it gives one a solid idea of how to handle a win.

As a regular blogger and columnist, McNay offers some pretty good financial advise, and is an advocate for populist economic measures. He takes the time to hold Wall Street to task for their lack of wisdom and makes valid points about how poorly served Americans are by governmental actions to bolster economics.

McNay, I feel, needs to do a follow-up book which tackles how the lotteries are run, from the poor payouts (less than 50%) to the requirement for nearly all winners to publicly announce their win. The recent jumbo lottery prize is a case in point, when over $1,500,000,000 was bet and only $600,000,000 or so ending up as the actual prize. That's a rotten payout. Most wagers, such a para-mutual betting, pay out nearly 94%. If that had applied to the jumbo prize, the pay out would have been $1,400,000,000. He also needs to spend some time going into the reasons behind why winners have no choice to remain anynomous. Only 4 states at this time let winners do that. Reasons for having no choice seem to center around bogus state rules designed to get as much PR out of a win as possible, while doing nothing for winners. McNay could bring much of this to light, and, I'm sure, entertain us in the process.

Great book, highly recommend it to all.

Excellent, Sadly enough he was my sister n laws brother n law and he passed away.
At 56. He was a legend as was his father. May you RIP Don McNay.

Don McNay has a way about him that makes you laugh (or cry, as appropriate), because he writes about real people and real things that have happened to them and how they handled those things (for good or for ill). This is not just a 'how-to' book (or a 'what to do' book), it is a book about human nature and how people react in certain circumstances. And it isn't just a book about getting some financial advice in certain situations, this book discusses many of the problems our society faces, like poor people being scammed by big banks (many of the same issues Elizabeth Warren and her mother covered in their book, but McNay describes these people from first-hand experience). And, like Elizabeth Warren, he has solutions - a few are tongue-in-cheek, but most are serious and should be taken seriously. In short, I found this book both entertaining and enlightening. So, for a fun read, where you can actually learn something at the same time, you should buy this book. I'm glad I did and will be buying more of Don McNay's books in the future.

Loved Don's background description of his childhood and how he has developed his experiences into what he has become (in spite of it!). He has proved to be the go-to expert when potential lottery winnings go sky high.

Doesn't take long to read this book. The information is well-written but mainly about the lotto and certainly an eye-opener in case you win! I recommend this to those of you who enjoy gambling (especially the lotto).

As a childhood friend of Don, you never questioned his ability to wear his heart and passion on his sleeve. His fortune is not valued in dollars. His value to our society is the real life that blessed his childhood from savory and eloquent characters who colorfully painted his life. Don and I may be on different sides of the political aisle but he is my favorite type of opponent who makes an argument with passion and fact and not an emotional party line bullet point. If Don wrote a daily play by play of an event viewed by most as boring, you know he would justify why this event could be important but more-likely the most entertaining event you may experience in your lifetime with lyrics and subconscious melody.

There are 378 pages in this book. Less than 10 pages have ANY advice on what to do should you win the lottery. Most of it is just a diatribe about what the author likes or doesn't like and discusses a lot of stupid people he has known or heard about. I've never seen any book, even a biography, that uses the words "I" and "ME" so many times. I'm sure he just put the words "..and what to do if you win the lottery" in the title just because he knew no one would buy this stupid book for the majority of the content. He is adamantly opposed to the lottery and the advice he so "generously" provides is essentially worthless. On the other hand the book "Lottery winners' guide" provides much more valuable info. I just purchased both books from Amazon. I have just thrown out this piece-of-junk book. I have no connection to either author.
I have known Don since attending EKU a few (lol) years ago. At that time I had no real idea about his background. After reading "Son Of A Son Of A Gambler" and knowing of his business here in Central Kentucky, I must say that this book is 'straight from the heart' and should be on everyone's reading list.
