Synopsis

The outspoken and outrageous presenter of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson, shares his opinions on just about everything in The World According to Clarkson - a hilarious collection of Jeremy's Sunday Times' columns and the first in his The World According to Clarkson series which also includes And Another Thing..., For Crying Out Loud! andHow Hard Can It Be?

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 liked 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 also 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.

Number one bestseller, 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.
