Well, here he relates his own experiences in his everyday "Geezer" style the consequences he suffered for his fight for a pay-out that never came.
We can laugh with him at his attention-seeking-streaking antic at Glorious Goodwood and then sympathise for his time served in prison for his cause, but these are just two of the many ways this man tried to get justice for a fair bet that was never honoured.
Read his book and judge for yourselves. And remember, the bookies were founded on a so-called "Gentleman's Agreement". I can see no such honourable agreement in these pages.
Shame on them...
One man against the big boys, Ladbrokes. Dont go thinking this book is about horse racing, some but mostly about one mans plight at getting back at the bookies.
Revenge comes in many forms, this is where I laughed the most, and felt sad at the same time. A spell in prison came from his what he called, 'Custards Last Stand.'
This book is so intriguing,how many men on this planet would have done what he did? Keith Hughan - I salute you. Thanks for sharing something that was personal.
This is without a doubt,one of the best reads I have had for a long time! I still chuckle to myself over this book.
Get it, you wont regret it!
I won a smaller amount but still a large sum around the time Keith did in Ladbrokes and I also had to go through the ordeal of the camera film etc. Luckily I was paid out.
This book is heart wrenching and a roller coaster of emotions. I can only imagine the ordeal Keith went through, the pain, the frustration and the heart ache.
Very well written.
Firstly and foremostly, there are too many bullies out there, and this book covers one mans plight and fight against them.
You have to be a very brave and determined man to put up with what Keith Hughan put up with.
The sheer audacity of (Lad*rooks) to bully and fob the punter off astounds me.
This book is written with a rare form of wit and desperation that I have not experienced before.
Its very clear to see that Keith is a loveable rogue but true to his heart, it has put me off betting for life.
This is a sad, funny energetic book which you will find hard to put down.
I read this book in two sittings, which is very rare for me.
Even though this book is not supposed to be a comedy, I was grinning hours after completing it.
Thanks Keith for making me feel sad and happy at the same time.
Would highly recomend.
P.S. Does anyone know if Keith Hughan has written any more books.
These corporate bullies are, it seems, untouchable and I hope his book sells many more copies so people can see for themselves what this particular bookmaker is like.
