Around The Races In Eighty Days is the funny, inspiring and candid account of a man who took a career break (had a mid-life crisis) and searched for possible answers, and possible questions to the possible answers, whilst attempting to watch horse racing at all the British courses in an eighty-day period.

His amazing odyssey coincided with a turbulent year in his life, becoming both a distraction and complication to events unfolding in the ‘real world’. Could his ludicrous challenge, one that took twenty years to transition from absurd dream to stark reality, survive against the odds?

“The story of a lost, obsessive, middle-aged man, and they can be capable of some pretty remarkable things.”
The Racing Post
