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 likes 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? 'Brilliant, laugh-out-loud' Daily Telegraph 'Outrageously funny . . . will have you in stitches' Time Out Number-one bestseller and presenter of the hugely popular Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections. Born To Be Riled, Clarkson On Cars, Don't Stop Me Now, Driven To Distraction, Round the Bend, Motorworld, and I Know You Got Soul are also available as Penguin paperbacks; the Penguin App iClarkson: The Book of Cars can be downloaded on the App Store.

Portrait

Despite this he has a clean driving licence.

Extremely funny!
Wer Jeremy Clarkson aus der BBC-Serie "Top Gear" kennt, der sollte sich diese Sammlungen von Kolumnen aus der Sunday Times nicht entgehen lassen. Und alle, die ihn noch nicht kennen, aber auf britischen Humor stehen, sollten dieses Buch in jedem Fall im Regal stehen haben! Es ist offensichtlich, daß Jeremy Clarkson etwas gegen die Blödheit und den Schwachsinn in dieser Welt hat - und im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen, wagt er es auch, sich laut dazu zu äußern. Und dies tut er mit einem herrlich erfrischen, amüsanten, politisch völlig unkorrekten und typisch britischen Humor. So läßt er sich in dieser Sammlung zum Beispiel über die Chelsea Flower Show und die extrem teuren Restaurants in Notting Hill aus und lästert sowohl über Amerikaner als auch Deutsche, Blair und die Europäische Union. Bloody brilliant stuff wie der Brite sagen würde!
