Even the most committed revhead would fail to find the book funny or informative. The biggest fan would be mystified by this amatuerish work.

What a sad waste of effort and resources. Little redeeming value, except to the casual viewer like myself that learned a fun fact or two. This book must be pulped in sacrafice to the tree gods.

If you've unfortunately already bought this back and still have the receipt, I would suggest you take it back for a refund and tell the bookseller to send it back t

Clarkson, Hammond & May... the modern-day equivalent of The Three Stooges.

God Bless 'Em.

They’re back. The trio of Clarkson, Hammond and May are on your computer, streaming device or provoking you with the promise of free to air broadcasting (thanks, Channel 7) of The Grand Tour. As the second series is about to premiere, it’s time for a book to look back on Series One. Now I haven’t seen all of the first series of The Grand Tour, so I may not have gotten all the in jokes, but this is a pretty funny book. It combines the humour you’ve come to expect from the trio with loads of pictu ...more

A hard book to actually rate. The pieces that are proper behind the scenes of the show are fascinating (especially stuff about the tent). The images were nice and the producer notes realistic and amusing. Most of the stats had something in them that made me laugh out loud.

But the rest of the book felt like a way to fill space. Some content was too absurdist to even be fun to read. If they’d stuck to a mix of fake and real stats and BTS notes, it would have been better.

I've never watched the Grand Tour nor the Top Gear, but this book is quite funny and I watched the first episode of the GT after reading this.
But just like the book, I couldn't finish it. Maybe lesser chapters would do.

Ummmm Still trying to reboot my brain after all the stupid...er um Sillyness!!

The boys are definitely back and I think Amazon isn't paying Jeremy enough or he wouldn't have had to write/invent/compile/edit this literary monsterpiece to pay his bills.

Have Fun!

Fun little coffee-table style book about the first season of The Grand Tour, mostly written by Richard Porter (the script editor) and long time script editor of Top Gear. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the show. It's a funny, neat read with plenty of funny pictures.

Disappointed.

Pseudo funny, just like the tv series...

Utter rubbish, childish and not at all funny or clever. Luckily I paid .99p, do not pay full price for this travesty.

The best parts were the postcards from the tent. I would have loved to seen more of those!

Fun read. Not a lot, but enough. If you watched Season 1, that's a good followup. The graphic design is amazing. Every page is like a poster and that is brilliant, like Clarkson would say. It is a good read - nothing too exceptional and nothing too bad about it.

“Flying means boredom. Next time you're going away, just drive. You can leave when you want. You don't have to sit next to a stranger. You can listen to all sorts of loud music without headphones and look at things out of the window that aren't just clouds. Driving is sensible alternative to flying.” 0 likes
