Three men's desire for a 'change of scene, and absence for the necessity of thought' leads to a trip down the Thames - with hilarious results. Leaving behind useless lumber, George, Harris and J still find packing an Herculean task, even when Montmorency the dog adds helpful hints. They embark on their journey hauling food for a year and clothes for a day. Peppered with anecdotes and seasoned advice, Jerome's sparkling comedy explains how not to get lost in a maze, sing comic songs and make scrambled eggs - and how not to go on a boating holiday.
