Praise for ‘Have I Got Views for You’:
'Johnson is a good-humoured, entertaining commentator, with an agreeably optimistic bent.' Observer
Praise for 'The Dream of Rome':
'I read it in two sittings, completely gripped. If Ruth Kelly has an ounce of sense, she will make this book compulsory reading for every 16-year old in the country.' Toby Young, New Statesman
'History comes alive only when written from the heart and Johnson's is full of swashbuckling japes, bloodthirsty yells and energetic sideswipes.' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
'Written with all the wit and zest that have helped to make him Britain's favourite celebrity MP.' Tom Holland, Daily Telegraph
Praise for Friends, Voters, Countrymen:
‘Johnson has cracked the art of making politics invigorating.’ Daily Telegraph
‘Such an entertaining read.’ Daily Mail
‘It is very funny and has, in short, all the idiosyncracies of its author.’ Jeremy Paxman

I would also not put any credence to the opinions formed about the cars as having anything to do with the cars in question, either. What the book is, is an entertaining holiday / commuting type read for people who do not care about cars so deeply as to be upset at how they are brutalised by Boris (review-wise, not physically) and who find Clarkson and / or PJ O'Rourke amusing.
The true surprise came from how sensible his larger scale transport problem suggestions are, compared to the relatively lightweight reviews.
