Clarkson is back! Pre order his brand new book now. ___________In November 2016 we woke up to the news that the forthright presenter of a popular television programme had become the most powerful man on the planet. His name, sadly, was not Jeremy Clarkson, but we might not have been any more surprised if it had been.Because the world seems to have taken a decidedly odd turn since Jeremy last reflected on the state of things between the covers of a book. But who better than JC to help us navigate our way through the mess?And while he's being trying to make sense of it all he's discovered one or two things along the way, including- The disabling effects of being vegan- How Blackpool might be improved by drilling a hole through it- The problem with meditation- A perfect location for rebuilding Palmyra- Why Tom Cruise can worship lizards if he wants toIt's all been a bit unsettling.But don't worry. If...

SUMMARY: The publication of The World According to Clarkson in 2004 launched a multi-million-copy bestselling phenomenon. But to no avail. Jeremy's one-man war on crimes against common sense has not yet been won. And our hero's still scratching his head at the madness of it all. But it's not all bad. He's learned a little along the way, including: why binge drinking is good for you; the worst word in the English language; the remarkable secret of eternal youth; the pleasure and pain of middle-aged drumming; the problem with America; and, how to dispose of a seal. For anyone who's ever been driven to wonder just what is the matter with people these days, For Crying Out Loud! is the perfect riposte. Surprising, fearless and always laugh-out-loud funny, Clarkson's back. And he's got a point.
SUMMARY: Jeremy Clarkson finds the world a perplexing place. So much so, in fact, that he wrote a book about it. But despite the appearance of the bestselling The World According To Clarkson, things don t seem to have changed much. And so Jeremy s having another go. In And Another Thing, our exasperated hero discovers that: bull;He inadvertently dropped a bomb on North Carolina bull;We re all going to explode at the age of 62 bull;Russians look bad in Speedos. But not as bad as Brits bull;No one should have to worry about being Bill Oddie s long lost sister bull;Cooking a Sunday Roast is one thing. Gravy is quite another bull;He should probably be nicer about David BeckhamBut while these things play on his mind, the world remains Jeremy s favourite place to be. On the whole, it s brilliant. It s just the idiots, meddlers and do-gooders who spoil it for the rest of us. Laugh-out-loud funny and as straight-talking as ever, Clarkson bursts their pointless little bubble, while celebrating the special things that we should hold dear.
SUMMARY: Jeremy Clarkson is the second-best motoring writer in Britain. For twenty years, he's been driving cars, writing about them and occasionally voicing his opinions about them on the BBC's Top Gear. No one in the business is taller. Here, he's collected his best car columns and stories in which he waxes lyrical on topics as useful and diverse as: bull; the perils of bicycle ownership bull; why Australians - not Brits - need bull bars bull; why soon only geriatrics will be driving BMW's bull; the difficulty of deciding on the best car for your wedding bull; why Jesus's dad would have owned a Nissan Bluebird bull; and why it is bus lanes that cause traffic jams Irreverent, damn funny and offensive to almost everyone, this is writing with its foot to the floor, the brake lines cut and the speed limit smashed to smithereens. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
What's it like to drive a car that's actively trying to kill you?This and many other burning questions trouble Jeremy Clarkson as he sets out to explore the world from the safety of four wheels. Avoiding the legions of power-crazed traffic wombles attempting to block highway and byway, he: shows how the world of performance cars may be likened to Battersea dog's home reveals why St Moritz may be the most bonkers town in all of the world reminds us that Switzerland is so afraid of snow that any flakes falling on the road are immediately arrested argues that washing a car is a waste of timeFunny, globe-trotting, irreverent and sometimes downright rude, Round the Bend is packed with curious and fascinating but otherwise hopelessly useless stories and facts about everything under the sun (and just occasionally cars). It's Jeremy Clarkson at his brilliant best.
SUMMARY: Jeremy Clarkson knows there's more to life than cars. There is, after all, a whole world out there just waiting to be discovered. So, before he gets on with the job in hand, he'd like to take some time out to consider the bigger picture. Don't worry, he'll get on to the car bit eventually, but before we do, there's time to learn about: bull; Why Galapagos tortoises are all mental bull; France, reduced to the size of a small coconut bull; Why Jeremy Paxman and the bass guitarist of AC/DC aren't so very different The problems of being English and God's most stupid creation And then there's the cars: Whether it's the poxiest little runabout or an exotic, firebreathing supercar, anything on four wheels is approached without fear or favour. What emerges from the ashes is not always pretty. But it is, invariably, very, very funny.

Is It Really Too Much To Ask? is the fifth book in Jeremy Clarkson's bestselling The World According to Clarkson series.Well, someone's got to do it: in a world which simply will not see reason, Jeremy sets off on another quest to beat a path of sense through all the silliness and idiocy. And there's no knowign what might catch Jeremy's eye along the way. It could be:-The merits of Stonehenge as a business model-Why all meetings are a waste of time-The theft of the Queen's cows-One Norwegian man's unique approach to showing his gratitude-Fitting a burglar alarm to a tortoise-Or how Lou Reed was completely wrong about what makes a perfect dayPithy and provocative, this is Clarkson at his best, taking issue with whatever nonsense gets in the way of his search for all that's worth celebrating. Why should we be forced to accept stuff...
SUMMARY: Jeremy Clarkson, it has to be said, sometimes finds the world a maddening place. And nowhere more so than from behind the wheel of a car, where you can see any number of people acting like lunatics while in control (or not) of a ton of metal. In Born to be Riled, Clarkson takes a look at the world through his windscreeen, shakes his head at what he sees ndash; and then puts the boot in. Among other things, he explains: nbsp; bull; why Surrey is worse than Wales bull; how crossing your legs in America can lead to arrest bull; the reason cable TV salesmen must be punched bull; that divorce can be blamed on the birth of Jesus nbsp; Raving politicians, pointless celebrities, ridiculous lsquo;personalitiesrsquo; and the Germans all get it in the neck, together with the stupid, the daft and ludicrous in a tour de force of comic writing guaranteed to have Clarksonrsquo;s postman wheezing under sackfuls of letters from the easily offended.
SUMMARY: it will come as no surprise to anyone that Jeremy Clarkson loves machines. But it's not just any old bucket of bolts, cogs and bearings that puts that rings his bell. in fact, he's scoured the length and breadth of the land, plunged into oceans and taken to the skies in search of those rare machines with that elusive certain something. And along the way he's discovered: The safest place to be in the event of nuclear war; who would win if Superman, James Bond and The Terminator had a fight; the stupidest person he's ever met; what an old Cornish institution called Arthur has to do with 0898 chat lines; and how Jean Claude Van Damme might get eaten by a lion . . . in i Know You Got Soul, Jeremy Clarkson tells the stories of the geniuses, innovators and crackpots who put the ghost in the machine. From Brunel's SS Great Britain to the awesome Blackbird spy plane and from the woeful - but inspiring - Graf Zeppelin to Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, they were built by people who love them - and we can't help but love them in return.
