What Am I Bid?

Philip Serrell

Rated 0

Autobiography: general

The well-known TV auctioneer's entertaining and informative memoir of a life under the hammer.

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. How wrong he was. In WHAT AM I BID? he tells of life after the events he described in AN AUCTIONEER'S LOT (2006) and SOLD TO THE MAN WITH THE TIN LEG (2007), to bring his story up to date. 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.
