When Philip Serrell - now well known for his television appearances - gave up teaching to become a professional auctioneer, he thought he was embarking on a sensible and safe career . . . a quiet life in the country with no surprises. In THE AUCTIONEER'S LOT we found out how wrong he was. SOLD TO THE MAN WITH THE TIN LEG Philip describes more of his extraordinary experiences as a country auctioneer, aided and abetted by some of the most colourful characters Worcestershire has to offer. From dodgy cars to fakes in the saleroom; angry livestock, mangled silverware and tortuous - not to mention muddy - experiences in local markets and farm sales, Philip has been there, done that and got the hoofprints on his suit to prove it. And of course, there's the return Philip's tin-legged boss . . .

Review:
'Marvellous . . . forget about car boot sales and eBay: this is the real thing.' (Independent on AN AUCTIONEER'S LOT)

'Philip Serrell's gentle tales are redolent of a vanishing, if not already vanished, way of life.' (Daily Express)
From the Publisher:
We had such a brilliant response to Philip Serrell's first book AN AUCTIONEER'S LOT - and now he's back with an even funnier, more colourful slice of his misadventures in the country. You'll probably recognise Philip from his TV work on Bargain Hunt and various other programmes, but you might be pleasantly surprised by his eye for the hilarious details of life as a country auctioneer, and his hopelessly endearing, endlessly self-deprecating humour. This is essential reading for fans of James Heriot and Gervaise Phinn, and anyone who loves heartwarming tales from the great British countryside.
