Read an extract from: Born to be Riled
SynopsisBorn to be Riled is a collection of hilarious vintage journalism from – bestselling author, Top Gear presenter, and columnist for both The Sun and the Sunday Times – Jeremy Clarkson.
Jeremy Clarkson, it has to be said, sometimes finds the world a maddening place. And nowhere more so than from behind the wheel of a car, where you can see any number of people acting like lunatics while in control (or not) of a ton of metal. In Born to be Riled, Clarkson takes a look at the world through his windscreeen, shakes his head at what he sees – and then puts the boot in.
Among other things, he explains:
• why Surrey is worse than
• how crossing your legs in
• the reason cable TV salesmen must be punched
• that divorce can be blamed on the birth of Jesus
Raving politicians, pointless celebrities, ridiculous ‘personalities’ and the Germans all get it in the neck, together with the stupid, the daft and ludicrous in a tour de force of comic writing guaranteed to have Clarkson’s postman wheezing under sackfuls of letters from the easily offended.
Number-one bestseller Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections. 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. His The World According to Clarkson series has sold over three million copies in the UK and places Clarkson frequently at the top of best seller lists.
Read a collection of Clarkson book extracts and quotes from Jeremy Clarkson’s latest titles.
