Jeremy Clarkson, shares his opinions on just about everything in The World According to Clarkson.
Jeremy Clarkson has seen rather more of the world than most. He has, as they say, been around a bit. And as a result, he's got one or two things to tell us about how it all works - and being Jeremy Clarkson he's not about to voice them quietly, humbly and without great dollops of humour.
In The World According to Clarkson, he reveals why it is that:
• Too much science is bad for our health
• '70s rock music is nothing to be ashamed of
• Hunting foxes while drunk and wearing night-sights is neither big nor clever
• We must work harder to get rid of cricket
• He liked the Germans (well, sometimes)
With a strong dose of common sense that is rarely, if ever, found inside the M25, Clarkson hilariously attacks the pompous, the ridiculous, the absurd and the downright idiotic, whilst also celebrating the eccentric, the clever and the sheer bloody brilliant.
Less a manifesto for living and more a road map to modern life, The World According to Clarkson is the funniest book you'll read this year. Don't leave home without it.
The World According to Clarkson is a hilarious collection of Jeremy's Sunday Times columns and the first in his The World According to Clarkson series which also includes And Another Thing . . . , For Crying Out Loud! and How Hard Can It Be?

Very good book, I enjoyed it :)
Self opinionated, funny, irreverent and terrifyingly right
Clarkson, the nail has been truly and irrevocably hit on the head. Please bring out more like this. Certain of your Top Gear performances do leave a little to be desired, for example the Bugatti Veronda, absolutely no mention of the availability of a towbar for example,
You tell it like it is, exactly why this country is going to hell in a handcart and how we are all sleepwalking into obscurity. Wake up and smell the coffee people, you laugh now, you won't be laughing soon!
Good Book but...
I must start by saying that I will now read the paper on Sunday to see Jeremys column but I hope the person who made this book computerised has bought a new keyboard as I dontthinkthespacebarwasworking that well.
