9780141035208: The World According to Clarkson (Penguin Celebrations)

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:

· He inadvertently dropped a bomb on North Carolina

· We’re all going to explode at the age of 62

· Russians look bad in Speedos. But not as bad as Brits

· No one should have to worry about being Bill Oddie’s long lost sister

· Cooking a Sunday Roast is one thing. Gravy is quite another

· He should probably be nicer about David Beckham

But 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. Sit back and enjoy as Jeremy puts the world to rights …

From the Back Cover:

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 ideas, people and institutions that we all have to put up with at home and abroad, whilst 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.

About the Author:

Jeremy Clarkson made his name presenting a poky motoring programme on BBC2 called Top Gear. He left to forge a career in other directions but made a complete hash of everything and ended up back on Top Gear again. He lives with his wife Francie, and three children in Oxfordshire. Despite this he has a clean driving licence.
