Jeremy Clarkson’s sense of humour may not be to everyone’s taste these days, but as a tight-arsed, grumpy Scotsman with short arms and long pockets, I firmly believe everyone should be able to laugh at themselves above and before anything else. But life as a globe-trotting petrol-head also meant he was forced to endure more than his fair share of foolishness, frustration, and downright bafflement.

This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations. There are no very happy people who spend their lunch hour eating weeds while scrolling through a stream of electronic misery on their laptop. I think I've read all of Clarkson's books but somehow this one from 2019 seems to have passed me by. As well as motoring, Clarkson has produced programmes and books on subjects such as history and engineering. And, while Jeremy may not be a patient man, you have to ask why anyone should have to consider issues as diverse and perplexing as: The downsides of relaxing in a bath of crude oil; why fishing is for people who hate their kids; whether there are noise-cancelling headphones with the power to silence James May; why saving the planet means soggy paper straws and no more children; and what to do about the rambler who stole his marrow.His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints. From a career as a local journalist in the north of England, he rose to public prominence as a presenter of the original format of Top Gear in 1988. Personally, i may have found my favourite book so far, and in every chapter i found a reason to encourage my friends to read this book also.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. These and other perplexing questions may or may not be answered in the latest volume of Clarkson's utterly unbiased musings on life, the universe and everything in between (except cars - this isn't one of his four-wheel drive books). You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. However, Clarkson knows how to engage everyone in his audience with relatable humour and silly words.This book contains his columns until about the beginning of the chinavirus epidemic, and is all about farming, and everything else. Most readers will fall into one of two opposing camps with few on the fence so, if you do not appreciate his outlook there is no point whatsoever in reading this as it is littered with his trademark outrageous comments like “cyclists should be put in prison”, yes cyclists irritate him but nobody thinks he means this literally; he is being facetious. But as puzzling and exasperating as life on the road often seemed to be, you could always count on Jeremy to set the world to rights with a rare wit and unique understanding.

Whether you love or hate the guy, however, you surely have to appreciate his writing style, which simply makes for an enjoyable read.I didn’t finish this book because what I did read was rude, curt and judgemental rantings which weren’t even funny or amusing.
