The book is great if you don't have much time as each chapter is independant of the other so you can pick it up, read a chapter and put it down again without feeling like you're messing up the flow of some novel.
Jeremy confesses he is prone to exaggeration and some of his episodes have to be read to be believed. The chapter on Detroit comes to mind. Thoroughly entertaining though.
Well worth a read.
I now own this paperback version and on reading it again I can remember why reading the version in the library made me laugh. I once said in another review of one of Clarkson's books that "...In his crusade to annoy, anger and aggravate, he brings a lot of honesty and a single-minded obsession that many so-called car reviewers lack". Well in this book, he takes that very un-politically correct writing style to review the driving habits of a few different countries around the world (The USA he visits twice). He doesn't pull any punches here, criticising anything that annoys him (Tokyo's traffic jams get a good dose of vitriol here) and mentions with glee anything that fascinated him (The sight of Italian villagers wanting to see Clarkson and two companions drive at speed out of their village, cheering them on).
This book will not be for everyone (Certainly not those who despise his views) but there is one thing you can't deny. He does have a good point and I mean a *very* good point...

This book is incorrectly listed as a book on Canadian Wildlife. It is in fact a Jeremy Clarkson book. Do not buy unless you are a petrolheadPublished 1 month ago by Sid Hemps
A good read in typical Clarkson style. Easy to pick up, read a short chapter about a particular country and put down again until you next have a few minutes spare.Published 23 months ago by Yorkie45

Excellent, interesting and informative reading from the hilarious Jeremy Clarkson.
Very well written and full of mad adventures. A "must read" for any fan!
Usual witty writing from the author but now a little out-of-date, which I didn't appreciate when I purchased the book - I should have taken more care by reading the summary and... Read morePublished on 8 July 2013 by Douglas Stewart
