His humor is heavy-handed, obvious and I imagine him to be a bit of a blowhard. Reading the articles all in a row and all at once, one can see references that he uses more than once, and these expose his insecurities, weaknesses, points of pride and dearth of first-hand information. No wonder he's so popular! He doesn't feel the need to write with factual authority. He culls a few news blurbs and forms a loose argument (not even coherent, frequently, mostly without logic) to back up an indignant complaint against the trivial. He takes trips to places and bandies about names, organisations, events and idealogies without seeming to know what he's talking about, yet this gives him a psuedo wordly aura. It was apalling reading but fascinating at the same time, like, how bad can this guy write? What kind of writing can one get away with in Britain and be paid for it? Pretty interesting!
I just wanted to verbalize my opinion instead of just harboring a vague distaste for the man's writing.
When I ordered this product, I was assured that the condition was "good". When product arrived their were coffee stains sticking the outside cover to the actual book. Not what I would call "good". The book itself is readable, but not what I expected.
The only question I have is, why have n't I read his books before?
Although the greens and the jobsworths get their share of ridicule, this collection of about 100 newspaper columns from 2004-5 covers a much wider range. When he does tackle the greens, his arguments aren't as entrenched as some people might expect. He has a reputation for intolerance, but he points out that his critics on the left are usually more intolerant (such as the Labour MP who said he wanted Clarkson dead and yet opposes the death penalty, suggesting that being an annoyance to environmentalists is a worse crime than child murder). Elsewhere, he argues that environmental laws are wrong because they actually cause more environmental damage than the problems they're trying to solve.
You won't agree with him all the time and the humour does flag a bit, but Clarkson is still one of the UK's more engaging columnists. But newspaper columns date quickly, so this book is a bit less essential now.
