I did enjoy this book but must say it was a bit slow going. It took a while to get into it, too. Each chapter tells a funny story of Serrell's auctioneering life which included some very interesting characters who made me chuckle. The main problem was that the narrative included a lot of unnecessary details and went on quite a bit! I would have preferred more succinct stories and a larger quantity. Even though it's not related to the story, I very much liked the illustrations at the beginning of each chapter! I give this book 6/10.
