Interesting not very long

I thought this book was quite good however it was not too long for a biography. I would have liked to hear some words from J Clarkson.

Very poor

Any additional comments?

Poorly researched, poorly written. Sounds like a (bad) magazine article with lots of filler. Clarkson deserved a better book.

But it does matter

Utter drivel, 20 minutes was enough and now it?s been deleted from every hard drive,Ipod, back up,that I posess. Repetitive, clich? after clich?, must have used Wikipedia, a few choice press clippings then just padded it out to make a book. In this case, ironically for Clarkson ?But it does matter?

Looking forward to the autobiography

Oh dear. I was left wondering if Ms Russell had ever met Jeremy after listening to this.
I was left with the impression the whole thing could have been written from Wikipedia or several hours of watching YouTube. There was very little that you hadn’t heard before and some glaring omissions (his early years spent as a columnist on Performance Car are not mentioned at all)

Overall this was a light, brief overview of the man and as I said before, I look forward to the book written by the man himself.

I was glad I bought this on a free credit and didn’t pay money for it.
Avoid.

Jeremy clarkson

I love clarkson I do he’s one of my favourite tv personalities.
The thing that makes me give this book 2 stars is it’s more a book about his history more than a book by him. It’s not personal it’s more of a cv read by someone else or written by someone else.
He constantly referred to in the third person.
The book lacked clarkson.

clarkson

To brief,but good listening.does not answer the question. Is he playing to the gallery or is he a tit.probably does not know himself. But at least he's a laugh.
