James May's elequent style of writing shines through in this book.
Although it is advised you never undertake any of the tasks outlined in the book, it is undoubtedly a very amusing read.
Topics range from:
How to build an escape tunnel from that unholiest of places, Bultins
How to avoid pointless and expensive litigation by fighting a duel
How to deliver twins without making a fool of yourself, or worse, killing anyone
How to drive a Peppercorn Class A1 4-6-2 Pacific Locamotive 'Tornado'
How to invade the Isle of White
How to eat your sadly departed best mate in times of peril
How to defuse an unexploded present from the 'Jerries', i.e. a World War Two bomb
How to woo a woman by playing the First Movement of Beethoven's Piano Sonata in C-Sharp Minor... Opus 27... No. 2... Quasi Una Fantasia... 'The Moonlight'... With no previous experience.
And finally, as the title suggests, how to land an airbus A330
In the course of reading this book, you may get slighlty confused, particularly when he outlines the flight controls for the Airbus, but, by giving James your undivided attention, you will come away from this book feeling happy at the new, so called, "man skills" you have aqquired.
