I just stick to the recent books of Jeremy Clarkson.
my only criticism is that he doesent focus his writings on cars as much as id like but apart from that its great reading material.the book has 358 pages and contains articles from performance car and top gear magazine.
As well as being something of a TV personality, Clarkson made his name by thinking about a new way of writing about cars, rather than just the usual complaints or praises about a new car's handling and speed.
In this book, you get to see why he has made a name for himself in some of his funniest and most well written articles.
With some, you can tell that he was pushed for ideas, but in the vast majority of articles he makes you chuckle, ending with a strong and meaningful conclusion and quite often starting off with a completely different topic.
All things considered, this book is a condensed view of Clarkson's opinion on all different cars, ranging from Aston Martins to Ferraris, as well as his opinion on everything else.
If you're a car fan, you should enjoy this book.
Jeremy Clarkson is really funny, and he writes in the same manner that he speaks. Only he could have written the books.
His book is hilarious, and gave me many giggles, chuckles and big belly laughs.
This book was so well written and funny, I've bought some of his other books, and will read all of them with the same pleasure.
Keep on writing Jeremy, reading your books is better than a tonic!
this is one of best collective writings of his on par with 'born to be riled'. it really is, laugh a minute stuff.
the book is split into two parts, the first part are the columns that first appeared in 'performance car' the second part first appeared in the sunday times.
this is a 'must' read for any clarkson fan.
For starters, the sample is very short, consisting of only about 2.5 articles reprinted from newspapers from about 20yrs+ ago. I found 3 very blatant spelling typos in those few pages and there was no cover. The title is "On Cars", but the first article was all about diaries and why JC can't use a Psion Organiser. The second article was just claptrap about the Golf GTI and handing imaginary crowns to various other cars. Nothing funny, nothing interesting, nothing profound. My feeling at the end of it all was "what a waste of time that was", but I suppose at £6 a pop, the publishers are quite happy to waste your time. Possibly the worst of all the Top Gear-related books I've read. 2/5
Wouldn't recommend this book if you're more interested in the comedy side of Clarkson. Having read The World According to Clarkson, I would recommend that as a more interesting and more up to date read.
If your interested in cars and you're more knowledgeable about older cars then I am, then this may be a book for you.

Whilst I enjoy watching this fat oaf on the TV I enjoy his books more. The ones he writes about cars are not as amusing to me as his collection of shorts from the Sunday Times but... Read morePublished on 22 April 2012 by colonel bagshot
