Synopsis

Born To Punt My Betting Year by Steve Palmer

Steve Palmer is that rare commodity, a journalist with a huge and very loyal following for his regular columns in the Racing Post. His many thousands of fans enjoy his idiosyncratic and amusing interpretation of his own and others betting activities as well as life in general. Where others see pain and misery Steve inevitably sees a unique and amusing angle. Born to Punt brings the best of Palmer's often hilarious anecdotes and stories together under one roof for the first time. These stories frequently involve the hideous misfortune and sometime joy which befalls the many of millions punters who regularly bet each week.

Reviews

Genuinely funny and honest. The Independent ... wit that will have you laughing out loud.The boy can punt but he sure can write too. The Sun
