9780141026114: Don't Stop Me Now

Jeremy Clarkson puts the pedal to the floor in Don't Stop Me Now, a collection of his Sunday Times motoring journalism.

There's more to life than cars. Jeremy Clarkson knows this. There is, after all, a whole world out there just waiting to be discovered. So, before he gets on to torque steer and active suspension, he takes time out to consider:

The madness of Galapagos tortoises

The similarities between Jeremy Paxman and AC/DC's bass guitarist

The problems and perils of being English

God's dumbest creation

Then there are the cars: whether it's the poxiest little runabout or an exotic, firebreathing supercar, no one does cars like Clarkson. Unmoved by mechanics’ claims and unimpressed by press junkets, he approaches anything on four wheels without fear or favour. What emerges from the ashes is rarely pretty. But always very, very funny.

'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.

Review:

'A dazzling hero of political incorrectness.'
-- Daily Mirror

From the Back Cover:

NO ONE WRITES ABOUT CARS LIKE CLARKSON. TRY THIS: 'Pile up to a corner, change down on the ridiculously narrow-gated gearbox, brake hard. Already your clutch leg is aching from the effort. Now turn the wheel. There's power assistance, but not much. Your arms are straining to hold the front in line, so you apply some power to unstick the back end. Grrrr, goes the 4.7 litre V8. Wheeeeeeeee goes the supercharger. And eeeeeeeeeeeeeee go the tyres as they lose traction.' OR THIS: 'I reserve my special level of hatred, my mental Defcon 4, for people who drive up the A44 at 40mph. I don't think we should be allowed to kill people who drive too slowly. It's never right to take life. But I do think we should be allowed to torture them a bit. Saw their legs off maybe, or shove a powerful air hose up their jacksies. Forty may have been acceptable in 1870, but it's simply unnaceptable now. If all the world did 40, it wouldn't work any more.'
