The sensational inside story of how the UK's most feared professional punter overcame adversity to take the bookmakers for more than £10 million in an eight-year period. This book offers a brutal, often controversial, but utterly fascinating insight into Patrick Veitch's life of punting. Told in Veitch's own candid ice-cool style, with an intelligent wit throughout, this is quite simply a compelling read.
