Yet I'm transfixed by his books, I laugh my balls off and sometimes even find myself a There's something about Jeremy Clarkson that I can't quite put my finger on. Yet I'm transfixed by his books, I laugh my balls off and sometimes even find myself agreeing with him. And I hate myself for it. His books are great though. There I go again. Feb 04, Barbra rated it liked it. Although I do find the man quite arrogant I do like his sense of humour and found some of this book quite funny.
In And Another Thing the king of the exasperated quip discovers that: Oct 26, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: While decidedly British in nature,Jezzo has a multi-cultural world view of the human condition and that condition is pathetic. What books still make you laugh out loud? It is outrageous, politically incorrect, ballsy and spot on.
Be forewarned, do not attempt to read this book in a public library. Your snickering and guffaws will get you booted. Clarkson, after your years of pointing out our idiocy in newspaper columns, TV shows and books, is there no end to your well of sarcasm? I While decidedly British in nature,Jezzo has a multi-cultural world view of the human condition and that condition is pathetic. I certainly hope not. Jun 07, Rebekah rated it liked it Shelves: If you hate Jeremy Clarkson then this book isn't going to change anything.
How can anyone hate him? If you are one of the better people who can actually stand him, then continue and read it. Some of these are very funny. I did find myself laughing out loud a couple of times. But others just feel like a middle aged man ranting about the world and how things ain't as good today as it was 'back it the day'. But saying that, he is a middle aged man so what do you expected. Therefor only 3 stars. But it's well worth a read.
Jan 28, Gus rated it it was ok. This is a compilation of Clarkson weekly colomn in the Sunday Times. These stories are generally his views on current events. At times they are quite funny laugh out loud at other times his views are very bigoted.
Only read half as it is very segmented, hope to pick it up again and finish it off. I think it would be excellent toilet reading! Aug 19, Tristan Ropa added it. The world is a very bizarre place according to Jeremy Clarkson. This book includes things like why the black American Express card is worthless and a wast of time. Jeremy Clarkson tries to understand teenagers, Americans and the world in its self. With many jokes about the Americans and the french I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the show Top gear or just wants to read a hilarious book From the viewpoint of a middle aged British man.
Sure, you won't agree on everything he says, but their his opinions and he's not afraid to say them and for that, he should get credit.
In And Another Thing the outspoken and outrageous presenter Jeremy Clarkson shares his opinions on just about everything. Jeremy Clarkson finds the . In And Another Thing the outspoken and outrageous presenter Jeremy Clarkson, shares his opinions on just about everything.
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. Dec 26, Amanda rated it it was amazing. I started this a bit ago and put it down and then picked it up again. I'm not sure why I set it down the first time it is hysterical. But I suppose you have to be somewhat familiar with Jeremy Clarkson, ie: Top Gear host for it to really be awesome.
While he rags on Americans almost as frequently as environmentalists as long as I hear his voice in my head I am laughing out loud and getting strange looks when I read in waiting rooms. Jan 02, Gary rated it really liked it Shelves: Clarkson is heaps of fun; refreshingly non-pc! Crude at times, yes. But boy he knows how to hit the mark with his satire.
Gravy is sort of one other; and, he should still most likely be nicer approximately David Beckham. Ria Christie Collections Condition: Except in Japan, of course, where you can buy dead tattooed people to turn into furniture. It is outrageous, politically incorrect, ballsy and spot on. His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints. But boy he knows how to hit the mark with his satire. Oct 26, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves:
Humour is the perfect pin to burst the bubbles of wacky environmentalists, puffed-up politicians, smile-less bureaucrats, and all others who suck lemons for breakfast before heading into the world wearing underwear that's three sizes too small. Jeremy's second collection of columns, from I don't always agree with him on things, but he does have a way of making me take a hard look at what I really do believe, and I have enough of a libertarian streak in me that I can relate to quite a bit of what he writes about.
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. Oct 20, Bhavya rated it did not like it. It wasn't meant for me. In fact, it was meant only for a something British living in Britain in Sure, it had its quarks. And sure, there were parts that were pretty funny hence the rating , but apart from that, I couldn't find any redeeming quality in this book when read by an Indian teenager in Aug 04, Chris rated it really liked it. As his first book really. More of the same and I laughed from start to finish.
I should add these are all taken from Clarkson's page that he writes for one of the Sunday papers - I forget which one so his subjects were always topical for the date they were written. As good as the first - perhaps better in fact. Never short of an opinion and seldom shy of seeking to shock or insult someone, preferably both it is an easy read with some laugh out loud moments! An assuming distraction which is occasionally offensive and invariably smug would wear thin in time unless you're the loyalist of disciples which I am not.
Jun 18, Jenn rated it really liked it. Jeremy Clarkson's second collection of essays from his column is as brilliant as his first. While I disagree with him half the time, I always think he's amusing and well-written! Whether he's taking on patio heaters, charity auctions, or, his favorite, environmentalists, he'll have you laughing AND thinking. I just got into Top Gear a few years ago. But the book was still very entertaining and enlightening. I find myself agreeing with Mr. Clarkson on a lot of his views.
And even when I didn't, it was still a very good read. Apr 14, Sofia rated it really liked it. Funny, but not as good as the first one. Clarkson is bitter and much more whiny in this book. I really hope that this is not a trend and this great writer and tv personality will not become increasingly worse as he ages.
It was very difficult to read and took me much longer than my usual two weeks to finish. Dec 01, Whisper19 rated it really liked it Shelves: Except in Japan, of course, where you can buy dead tattooed people to turn into furniture. Jan 23, Alan Pursell rated it it was amazing.
Mostly because it's conservative in the way you'd quite like it to be and not the creepy Anne Coulter Fascism pretending to be compassionate way.
It's also really funny. Jul 27, Lucy Werner rated it liked it. In my view the perfect book to have around in the toilet! Just wish i'd had read them when they were in the paper Jul 27, Aaron rated it liked it. Just a collection of Clarksons news paper editorials. Mildly amusing, but somewhat old.
He has an amusing way with words that sometimes cause unsuitable patches of laughter while reading in various places. Sep 13, Gillian rated it really liked it Shelves: Clarkson is one of my heroes and who on earth knows why. He is a chauvinist right-winger All his columns are witty and to the non petrol-head even his columns on cars are entertaining.

In And Another Thing, our exasperated hero discovers that: But not as bad as Brits; no one should have to worry about being Bill Oddie's long lost sister; cooking a Sunday Roast is one thing.
Gravy is quite another; and, he should probably be nicer about David Beckham. But while these things play on his mind, the world remains Jeremy's favourite place to be. On the whole, it's brilliant. It's just the idiots, meddlers and do-gooders who spoil it for the rest of us.
