If you already have a book of him, you know you want this one
If this will be your first, it will not be your last
Clarkson is a joy to read and after commencing you just don't want to put the current book down so you can get through it to aqait the arrival of your next Clarkson book purchase. He's spot - right - on about the issues he chooses to write about. The book is a good read and Jeremy Clarkson deserves 5 Stars, iof for no other reason that putting up with James May !
This book is for those who love cars, love Top Gear and love Jeremy Clarkson's humour.
If you want a more world view past and present then you can't go wrong with adding The World According to Clarkson to your basket too.
Having established that is this as good (or as bad if that's your opinion) as the other books that collected columns he'd written the Sunday Times? Yep. Perfect airport lounge fodder. Perfect vacation reading. Perfect for a gift for your stupid brother - hang on, there's an idea....
So, having established that this book is like all the others and that - among other high/lowlights - will tell you why washing a car is a waste of time, reminds you that Switzerland is so afraid of snow that any flakes falling on the road are immediately arrested, reveals why St Moritz may be the most bonkers town in all of the world and shows you how the world of performance cars may be likened to Battersea Dogs Home. Well, that's what the blurb on the back says....
That being said, I think he's politically absurd. While that normally doesn't get in the way of me enjoying the work he puts out, this book got tiresome to read after awhile. I really only read a few reviews every time I pick up the book, simply because I'm sick of him talking about polar bears and congestion charges and speed cameras.
It's a fun book, but if you're like me, don't read too much of it at once.
