I bought this for my boyfriend for christmas and he certainly was enterined by Jeremy wheelspinning, wheelying and generally pratting about in different machines. How ever much you find Clarkson annoying, he does know his stuff.
Definetly a good book for small groups of children. It has lots of ideas, many of which require little or no equipment and preparation. Perhaps slightly too much of the book is given over to quiet games. A cross refernce of ages and number of kids needed for each game would have been a welcome addition.
