    About "Jeremy Clarkson"

    1. Jeremy Clarkson

      Jeremy Charles Robert Clarkson born April 11, 1960 is an English broadcaster and writer who specialises in motoring.He writes weekly columns for The Sunday Times and The Sun, but is better known for his role on the BBC television programme Top Gear.From a career as a local journalist in the north of England, he rose to public prominence as a presenter of the original format of Top Gear in 1988 Since the mid 1990s Clarkson has become a recognised public personality, regularly appearing on British television presenting his own shows and appearing as a guest on other shows As well as motoring, Clarkson has produced programmes and books on subjects such as history and engineering From 1998 to 2000 he also hosted his own chat show, Clarkson.His opinionated but humorous tongue in cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints His actions both privately and as a Top Gear presenter have also sometimes resulted in criticism from the media, politicians, pressure groups and the public.As well as the criticism levelled against him, Clarkson also generated a significant following in the public at large, being credited as a factor in the resurgence of Top Gear to the most popular show on BBC Two, and calls for him to be made Prime Minister Clarkson himself was keen to downplay his perceived influence on the British public, stating he regularly contradicts himself, and would make a rubbish Prime Minister.

    1. I like Clarkson's later stuff so it was a surprise I didn't warm to his early writings, usually its the reverse with many authors. Most of these articles are outdated (made worse with no dates and therefore context), more whinging pom rant than humorous, and many of the cars he talks about are just too damn European for an Australian to relate to.



    2. Quite enjoyable but not always good. I enjoyed starting the book, but let's start with the length. There's over 100 stories in the book or so. My kindle at least goes up by 1 percent almost every time I finish one, but not always. So there's a lot of information. The book is filled with articles from Clarkson's time at Performance Cars. He's quite witty, he has some great zingers, and the stories are good to begin with. You get an idea what the life of a professional car reviewer is really like [...]


    3. This book feels very dated now, Jeremy is berating Austin Rover and dreading when the Welshman (Neil Kinnock) will get into power. I think he has got better and funnier with agee later collection "The World According to Clarkson" is much funnier. Here he is offensive to just about everyone, but its more of a whingeing right wing rant with flashes of humour, than his later works which are laugh out loud funny. Old people are forever driving snail like to beetle drives in Japanese cars. He is quit [...]


    4. Although I am politically diametrically opposed to Jeremy Clarkson – and therefore many of his opinions – I do find his books to be very witty. (I Know You Got Soul is actually one of my favourite books of all time and was read at a single sitting.) This book however left me feeling angry. I think that because the articles reprinted here date from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, the hindsight that I now possess demonstrates that this bigoted and intolerant Tory arsehole does spout a lot of b [...]


    5. Jeremy Clarkson from the original "Top Gear" television show takes us on a journey through many parts of England particularly, trialing vehicles, attending car launches and automotive shows around the world. He pontificates on bus lanes, old age, babies, and almost every subject under the sun, as he shares with us his insights on good and bad drivers, the state of the roads, and the faults and failings of many cars that have been launched on the market. He picks on the advertisers, the media, po [...]


    6. Probably 3.5 to 4 stars, if it were a bit shorter. This is a collection of Clarkson's early essays --- quite funny at times (assuming you can handle his libertarian point of view), but sometimes repetitive. It's also fairly dated --- the piece on telephones in cars (why would you want one?) screams of the nineties. My favorite insights from the book involved seeing more thoughtfulness from Clarkson than I expected from his Top Gear persona. Several essays discussed safety issues and the dangers [...]


    7. A collection of Clarkson's columns from the mid-1980s to mid-'90s, Clarkson on Cars airs Mr Clarkson's views on Volkswagen Beetles (Nazi cars), vegetarians (expect everyone to conform to their whims), Beards (just weird), the Jaguar XJS (Glorious) and the usefulness of car performance stats (0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds is less informative than calling it "terrifying").

    8. Dit is geen boek voor mij. Ik houd namelijk niet van auto's. Maar toen ik tien jaar geleden mijn rijbewijs haalde vond mijn broer het nodig mij dit boek te geven. En eindelijk had ik besloten het eens te gaan lezen.En Clarkson is best grappig. Ook al is hij ook een enorme hork. Maar grappig vond ik hem vooral om naar te kijken, en op papier komt dat toch minder goed over. Vind ik dan.Twee sterren.


    9. I think this was a great book. If you're going to read it just go into it knowing that it is a compilation of stories and don't expect one solid plotline. Also, if you get offended easily this book is not for you. It is full of sarcasm on some our society's most sensitive topics. If you are familiar with Clarkson's style of humor you will love this book but if not just make sure you're easy going enough to not take anything he says personally.


    10. Much of the humour's a bit dated now ("as sensitive as Ian Botham on the cocaine issue"), and I found myself skipping a lot of the specific-car related articles (eg on the "new" Honda CRX I don't care much, 20 years later), but there was enough in there not to have to consign it to the "couldn't finish" shelf.If you like Clarkson's brand of humour, just watch Top Gear.


    11. Now I understand why Clarkson doesn't present Top Gear on his own. As part of a trio, he's quite engaging, but on his own, he's a wee bit tiresome, a bore and a boor at the same time, not as funny as he thinks he is and often not at all. Perhaps this collection isn't one to read all at once, it was a heck of a slog. For devoted Clarkson (and Thatcher) fans only, I'd say.


    12. Love Jeremy, but I just couldn't get into this book. I read a few of the essays and they were ok, but I had no desire to read all of them. I think this is a compilation of his early career work and obviously he has improved over the years!


    13. I was close to halfway through this book and realised that I actually wasn't enjoying it. I can tolerate Clarkson's views on Top Gear but I couldn't stomach a book of it. I thought the book might have some humour in it, but it didn't.


    14. Brilliant sense of humour and so lovely politically incorrect, I love it. Although most of the columns are technically outdated, they lost none of their universal truth and original view on human behaviour.


    15. Yeah, it's cool. The cars are bonkers. So is Mr. Clarkson. Besides, he too isn't a big fan of crazy chaps going around in circles over and over and over and over, then refueling, and then again going over and over and over and over, like in a looney toons cartoon!


    16. This book had some interesting opinions and was packed with Jeremy Clarkson's special brand of humour. However the book was just a collection of short stories and opinions, it was disjointed and lacked any sort of flow from one topic to the next. The book wasn't on any particular topic.


    17. Some of this is dated in an amusing kind of way (Jezza's first encounter with a car phone, for example) but other articles are dated in a way that makes them fairly pointless for a modern reader. Still, the majority of the pieces in here are still well worth reading.


    18. Some pretty witty comments hidden among the usual over-the-top perspective on everything including the French, USA, Germany - and cars. A diverting few minutes spent with each utterance. Decidedly opinionated.


    19. Clarkson is always entertaining. This collection of his earlier writing shows how some of his views have changed, how some predictions have come to pass, but most of all, how his self-belief hasn't diminished a jot.


    20. Klasický Clarkson - jízlivý, Britům, Francouzům, Američanům ani Japoncům nic nedarující, přesto schopný ocenit dobré auto. Škoda jen, že není u jednotlivých článků datum, člověk by byl schopen víc zasadit obsah do kontextu doby.


    21. Hard work at times as very small chapters so you never really get your teeth into reading something thats indepth and keeping your attention Plus its hard not to read this book hearing JC speaking what he's saying as though he's on the sofa on Top Gear lol


    22. Very well-written and quite funny. However, a little outdated in this day and age. Also, Clarkson tends to rant which gets a bit tedious at times. Despite all this, it still remains entertaining and I loved reading it.


    23. В книге имеются десятки статей Кларксона об автомобилях. Все они написаны в 90-х годах, поэтому книга не особенно актуальна. Однако, может быть интересна тем, кто любит его журналистский слог. Главное, что не скучно, но и не особенно полезно для тех, кто не сильно разбирается в [...]


    24. Hm, seems some people don't like collections of newspaper/magazine articles.I do. Just the right length for a quick 'dose' of snark before turning out the light and going to bed.I have read this book more times than I care to count.


    25. Doesn't matter that I know sweet fanny Adams about cars, JC just makes me laugh. He's so outspoken, but just says what other people think only are afraid to say.



    26. Great entertainment, Clarkson style. If you love cars, annd enjoy Jeremy's dry, sometime politically incorrect humor, you'll love this easy read.


    27. I like Clarkson's style, books, saying and of course I liked this book too. It isn’t his best work, it isn’t full of funny moments, but it’s OK.
