And Another Thing: The World According to Clarkson: Volume 2 (The World According to Clarkson #2)
In And Another Thing... the outspoken and outrageous presenter Jeremy Clarkson, shares his opinions on just about everything.
Jeremy Clarkson finds the world such a perplexing place that he wrote a bestselling book about it. Yet, despite the appearance of The World According to Clarkson, things - amazingly - haven't improved. Not being someone to give up easily, however,...more

Five out of ten.
Extracts from Clarkson's column in the Sunday Times. The usual rants about any and every subject. Quite amusing but often needs to be read at the time the column was written (they tend to be topical) which means this book has a limited lifespan.
If you're not a fan of his irreverant 'take-no-prisoners, call-it-as-he-sees-it' attitude and writing style, then there are plenty of other books out there that might suit you better... on quilting perhaps? Or even flower-arranging...

He's more than a bit of a curmudgeon at this point, and I'll be curious, as I keep reading this series, to see if and how he mellows over the years.
This is the second book of his that I've read, and I can promise you that I will be finishing the series and reading some of his other books as well.
Well done Jezza!
i love tattoos, but this made me laugh my head off
"The only good thing is that when the subject dies, the tattoo dies too. Except in Japan, of course, where you can buy dead tattooed people to turn into furniture.
"Interesting idea: yakuza scatter cushions."
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. ...more
