Since the first draw in November 1994, The National Lottery has created over 3700 millionaires. In the year of its 20th anniversary, this film speaks to a range of lottery winners and explores the emotions and human drama that unfold after getting those six magic numbers. We see the dizzying experience of sudden fame and fortune up close. Lottery wealth is like no other. There's no time to anticipate or ease gradually into your new circumstances. The winner's journey from overdraft to overload is instant. We follow the stories of winners who have travelled from rags to riches - and sometimes back again. How has becoming a millionaire changed their lives? Is winning good for you? What has it done to their relationships with families and friends? What did they spend their money on? We meet the people who have kept all their money safe and those who have spent every last penny. Seventy percent of us regularly buy a Lottery ticket, even though the odds on winning the jackpot are one in nearly 14 million (the same odds as there being a temperature of over 30C on Christmas Day in London).

This book is a step-by-step guide to changing minds and deeply influencing people in person, in print, on the air, or anyplace else you need to persuade.
