Overview

From causing huge disruptions and defending the rights of drivers to fisticuffs with Piers Morgan, this is the true story of a colorful life lived at breakneck speed

 

Motoring aficionado, comic writer, television host, engineering buff, journalist, author, and unapologetic bon viveur, Jeremy Clarkson is one of Britain's most controversial personalities, and in this riveting and entertaining biography, frank views and hilariously candid anecdotes appear alongside the life story of the self-confessed Eurosceptic, chain-smoking grease monkey. After a stint as a traveling salesman, Clarkson set up his own press agency, and soon found fame and fortune with BBC's Top Gear. Notoriously hit in the face with a banana meringue pie the day he received his honorary degree, he has been accused of calling cyclists "muesli freaks" and BMW employees "Nazis." Love him or loathe him, he can't be ignored.

    Okay book but a bit dated.

    A not very detailed book about loud mouth Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame. If you are a fan of J Clarkson (and I am) you should enjoy this book although you will wish for more than just a few stories about his off-camera actions. The book stops around 2007 so it is seven years out of date and a lot more has been said and done since.
