“Do not count your chickens before they are hatched” is a classic saying that might well have been remembered by Ukridge. Ukridge is always on the verge of making a fortune and counting his thousands before they are made. But Dame Fortune is a fickle jade. She eludes him in his great scheme about the dog college, wherein he was to turn out a world supply of trained dogs, and likewise in his backing of Battling Billson, the tender-hearted pugilist. But hope and George Tupper keep Ukridge going. He is ever ready for the next assault. First published as short stories. - Summary by From the introduction (8 hr 52 min)

Ukridge is so unbelievably annoying that this is what makes his stories so funny. He is so amazing at never giving up and repeatedly getting friends to trust him "one more time". Silly and hilarious. Thank you to the excellent volunteers.

What a crazy book! Mark Nelson remains one of my favorite readers so it's a pity he only reads one chapter in this book. The other readers are fair.
