Product Description

Review

"'Contains everything a four-wheel fanatic could ever want to know about cars on celluloid' - The Express 'A 180mph read full of his (Clarkson's) testosterone-fuelled humour' - Midweek 'A must for any car nut. Not only is it hilarious, but its broad subject is packed with loads of facts you never knew. A fantastically illustrated, compulsively readable, speedy and glamorous car chase through history's most meaningful motors' - Classic & Sports Car" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Jeremy Clarkson, and Top Gear, have changed massively in the 11 years since this book was written. Reading it, you get the feeling that he was still massively seduced by the whole glamour / wealth / birds vibe of owning an expensive car; nowadays, he's seen it all and has developed a healthy sense of detatchment from the grubbier consumerist aspects. Although he still obviously loves driving powerful cars, he's much more concerned with the infinitely more rewarding pursuit of goofing about with his mates. His output these days is sweetened with a big dose of irony and self-mockery, and he's a million times funnier as a result. He's always been a good writer, though, and this book has its moments.

Either you love Clarkson or you cannot stand him. In my case, although I find his humour to be somewhat below the belt at times, his descriptions and frank honesty when it comes to motoring, make for most entertaining reading. A book written in typical Clarkson style.

This book had me laughing out loud in several places. My only complaint is that he leaves you wanting more! (It's a bit short, for the money. Blame the publisher I suppose.)
