        Jeremy Charles Robert Clarkson born April 11, 1960 is an English broadcaster and writer who specialises in motoring.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 Since the mid 1990s Clarkson has become a recognised public personality, regularly appearing on British television presenting his own shows and appearing as a guest on other shows As well as motoring, Clarkson has produced programmes and books on subjects such as history and engineering From 1998 to 2000 he also hosted his own chat show, Clarkson.His opinionated but humorous tongue in cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints His actions both privately and as a Top Gear presenter have also sometimes resulted in criticism from the media, politicians, pressure groups and the public.As well as the criticism levelled against him, Clarkson also generated a significant following in the public at large, being credited as a factor in the resurgence of Top Gear to the most popular show on BBC Two, and calls for him to be made Prime Minister Clarkson himself was keen to downplay his perceived influence on the British public, stating he regularly contradicts himself, and would make a rubbish Prime Minister.

    1. Jeremy Clarkson is a co-host of the car show Top Gear, so it's no surprise that this book is all about cars, roads, and driving. He has a great sense of humor and parts of it are funny, but all the car details just go right over my head.


    2. Мне не понравилась обложка серии "Чтения дюаристов", особенно когда я увидел оригинал, изданный в Англии. И это единственный недостаток книги. Издание качественное, бумага отличная. Но главное — КАКИЕ ЖЕ ОТЛИЧНЫЕ ТЕКСТЫ!Вообще это подборка колонок Кларксона для воскресной [...]


    3. I've been a fan of Jeremy Clarkson since I saw my first episode of Top Gear some years back. I've read a few of his books since, and have absolutely loved every page. Born to be Riled is essentially a collection of Sunday newspaper articles written by Clarkson. Every single one of them is essentially the review of a car but they end up being so much more. This book will earn you a few strange looks from those in the vicinity as you will undoubtedly break down into fits of giggling from time to t [...]


    4. The book is a compilation of his weekly articles. This is before the era of the new BBC Top Gear. But that does not mean Clarkson is any less shrewd. He tears into manufacturers. But even more than that, his target falls on society and the British govt. Ideal for light reading and simply enjoying. No serious content. Enjoyed reading it thoroughly.


    5. Despite being quite an old book now this is another great example of Clarkson's controversial and as a result hilariously funny wit. Not for everyone I know and he has his enemies but if you are in any way a fan I think you'll enjoy this book. Missed out on 5 stars only because it felt a little bit long.


    6. Hilariously funny - for every motor fan - is a must lecture and for non-motorist - it's still great deal of humour:)Jeremy has a talent for good story telling. Highly recommended. I literally LMAO :))


    7. I was expecting a good read, fun & informative or interesting! But actually, it was a bit boring, he talks about things from a prespective that makes you question why did you like a person with that dark and twisted psyche. Never finished it.


    8. Brilliantly written. One of the few books I've literally laughed out loud to. On the other hand, very dull when taken by itself; it's like cabbage- good for you though only to accompany other mains :)


    9. Some of the articles are dated by their focus on politicians, policies and issues of the era (mid-90s) but most is still interesting at the very least and the car stuff is pretty timeless. An excellent read.


    10. Started off good, few hearty laughs but became a little repetitious by the last quarter.That's not to say it is poorly written, the articles on their own are good, but condensed together is when the problem arose.


    11. A compilation of his columns from The Sunday Times, and a wicked observation on just about everything. Love this mans critical eye and acerbic wit. Particularly the four stages of man;- Buying washing up bowls, Tuning the car radio to radio 2, The School Run, and finally, Gardening. How true.


    12. God, I do love the wicked sense of humour that Clarkson serves every time he writes. No one else can make up the weirdest comparison in the universe and make it work!







    13. Total over-the top-humour about cars and other things. I even agree with him on a fw points. Just a few! Coincidental I finished this on April Fool's Day!






    14. Brilliantly Clarkson, as usual. Unfortunately, repeatedly reading about bus lanes is, I imagine, rather akin to sitting in heavy traffic looking at them. . .




    15. These were all written before 'new' Top Gear started and it's interesting to see how his opinions may have changed over the years.


    16. Inly found out book was published in about 2000 after I started reading t so the car reviews was woefully out of date
