5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the DVD!!, 20 Jun 2009
I was in the audience of the DVD recording and it was awesome, he really is on top form at the moment, definately worth getting. He even filmed the extras there and then with some classics.
He is a naturally funny Llanbobblian :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 10 Dec 2008
Jeremy Clarkson has to go down as a national treasure. I loved his previous books, and waited with eager anticipation for the release of 'for crying out loud' and it did not disappoint.

I never re-read books, apart from Clarkson's as I never tire of them and this 3rd volume is no exception. Bring on the next installment, please!
