Ifs and putts,
This review is from: Born to Punt: Steve Palmer's Betting Year (Hardcover)
This does what it says on the tin - SP tells the tale of his numerous wagers throughout 2010
He is convinced that if can land a big win (minimum £30,000) he'll have a big enough kitty to abandon his 'day job' on the Racing Post and become a professional gambler.
Anyone who likes a bet will be able to relate to his string of near-misses.
It's also something of a cautionary tale as his available funds dry up as Christmas is coming.
Steve writes with a refreshing candour which makes this an entertaining and brisk read.
But he seems destined to fail with his long-term aim, largely through a lack of self-discipline.
