About Author

  1. 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.

One thought on “For Crying Out Loud!

  1. I toyed for a long time between giving this 3 or 4 stars I think it s probably a 3.6 all in.Clarkson is very perceptive and has an endearing dry wit to writing His success is in that he is obviously very intelligent, but humorously portrays himself as somewhat stupid There are numerous references to Top Gear in this book and his dialogue and comical reference points are reproduced in written form successfully Even if you don t agree with his conclusions, some of which are serious and some are hu [...]

  2. I enjoyed this holiday reading book, altho quite a bit of the content is now outdated, and I missed a lot of the many references to UK celebrities or politicians Clarkson has an enjoyable writing style, bouncing between exaggeration, insight, and sarcasm And he tells a tale with perfect lead up and description, making me laugh out loud all too often.

  3. So what, then, with my wealth of experience of the animal kingdom would I recommend if you don t want a dog any Well, not a cat, obviously despicable animals, the four legged equivalent of a footballer s wife pretty, well groomed and clean but, fundamentally, only after your money And why is the shipping forecast so bland Why instead of stormy don t they say the sea s a frothing maelstrom of terror and hopelessness Only last week we heard that scientists in the South American rainforest have fo [...]

  4. If you don t like Jeremy Clarkson then do not read this book You will not be pleasantly surprised, he hasn t changed This book is Jeremy Clarkson getting angry about stuff Stuff in this book includes schools, parties, the environment, music, dead seals, the monarchy, camping, James Bond, dead donkeys, television and the weather Admittedly he doesn t always get angry, sometimes he just grumps But if you ve watched him on tv and thought he was an arse, don t buy this book and expect something diff [...]

  5. I am beginning to suspect that the persona Jeremy Clarkson presents through his writing is very much in line with the persona Stephen Colbert presents through his television show Is Clarkson conservative Of course Is he a bit of a douche sometimes Many people would certainly agree with that But the levels of bigotry and stereotypes he claims to agree with is just over the top enough to make me doubt his honesty He wouldn t be as successful as he is if this wasn t a tongue in cheek assessment of [...]

  6. Being bored at the airport, watching Top Gear and looking at some of Clarkson s past paper columns convinced me to pick up this book and I definitely don t regret it A compilation of newspaper columns from 2006 2007 which I ll admit, made some things slightly out of context but nothing beats hindsight in some circumstances , Clarkson really doesn t hold back Covering topics ranging from political correctness to traditional family Christmasses, there truly is something for everyone One thing I al [...]

  7. Typical Jeremy There is always a large grain of truth in his sometimes outrageuos approch He dares to say things many of us probably think and is wholly entertaining in the process Keep them coming Can t wait for Vol 4.

  8. Good, but it s the book that sits in the loo for people to read Not really something you d sit and read cover to cover, read little bits and put it down.

  9. was funnier than the second book this book is important because i read it at a time when some absolutely selfish pillocks conjured excuses for why they wouldn t do their bit for global warming having read his columns beforehand, not getting incandescently angry at them wasn t so difficult at least clarkson is honest about being self interested and it appears he isn t the genuine panto villain people make him out to be.

  10. I enjoy watching Clarkson on the old Top Gear episodes and the new Grand Tour on , so I had high hopes for this book It is written in his unique style and view of the world, but unfortunately there were too many local references that don t translate to us here in America Too often he would reference a specific person or place in England and I d have no clue what he was talking about.

  11. For Crying Out Loud The World According to Clarkson vol 3Jeremy Clarkson You d think Jeremy Clarkson doesn t worry about being shot That is all the people who he has insulted The third installment of The World According to Clarkson is one of those books you want to read Clarkson s personality, which I do say is hilarious, is expressed well you can almost hear his voice when you read it Working for the BBC as a presenter for one of its top show s, Top Gear, Clarkson also wrote for the Sunday Time [...]

  12. 2nd star only because he is objectively a good writer didn t love the content, but was curious after watching some Top Gear.

  13. They say that as you age your outlook to life drifts further to the right, in which case I may be the exception that proves the rule Either that of Clarkson is just moving further to the right a heck of a lot quicker than me I am finding it increasingly difficult to reconcile the fact that occasionally Clarkson can be genuinely witty with the downside that he is actually a bit of a bigot As the comedian Patrick Kielty said when he appeared on Top Gear, He s the only man that confuses his own opi [...]

  14. If you are a fan of Top Gear, then this book is a must simply because Jeremy Clarkson has written it It surely isn t a light read because at some parts it is quite tedious, but Jeremy makes those parts up with sayings like And we therefore know that eating a supermarket strawberry is a bit like making love to the most beautiful girl in the world and finding out she s got the bird flu.He is as direct as ever, but not only in a funny way, he can be quite serious about other topics too He talks abo [...]

  15. I thought I should try a Clarkson as I quite like Top Gear and he s made me laugh once or twice in his Sunday Times column This volume contains his weekly Murdoch shilling from 2006 2007 Most of the writing appears to have been dashed off in an ever so slightly longer period of time than it takes to actually read Hence it s a ragbag of half thought through libertarian diatribes, most of which are surprisingly lacking in the kind of humour that would have made them palatable We all know Jeremy tr [...]

  16. Ok I seriously need to find the other volumes CauseOh God I just enjoyed this one soooo much It is a collection of articles that Jeremy Clarkson wrote in his column in the Sunday Times.Which is Ranting about everythingmetimes I didn t have a clue what is he rambling on but What the Hell was freaking Hilarious.For me it wasn t a book that I would or could finish quickly And just can t finish such books quicklyyou need time to REALLY enjoy every page of itI absolutely Loved itP.S than [...]

  17. There s something about Jeremy Clarkson that I can t quite put my finger on Everything should suggest that I should hate him and not even want to pick up one of his books or watch one of his shows But yet I do His brand of tired misogyny and out of touch dad stupidity and his obsession with gas guzzling cars is everything that I hate Yet I m still drawn to him Even some of his opinions I don t agree with Yet I m transfixed by his books, I laugh my balls off and sometimes even find myself agreein [...]

  18. A collection of his weekly columns in the UK s Sunday times newspaper dating between January 2006 and December 2007, Jeremy passes his own unique judegement on a wide variety of topics.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 arrangingHowever, if you too find yourself continually frustrated by the boneheaded decisions made [...]

  19. Sometimes I should read the description full and carefully Because this is exactly as described a collection of Jeremy s Sunday Times columns and nothing It s kind of needless to read The columns have a very wide range from bad to good, sometimes it seemed like he did not know what to write Also it s full of London British insiders, celebrities I ve never heard of And the humour is missing, instead you read the complaints of an old man.If you need a cynical, amusing view of Britain in 2009 this [...]

  20. I didn t find this book as attention grabbing or funny as the others in the series, however, it s still a good book overall As normal, 7 years down the line, Clarkson s articles are still relevant to life today and you shall find yourself nodding in agreement along with him This book is a little risque than the first two of the series, with Clarkson s opinions written a little fearlessly than previously Despite not being the best of the series, I will not hesitate to continue reading the entir [...]

  21. I find Clarkson really funny eventhough he s old and is grumpy most of the time, he s a big kid at the same time I like the way he views the world and how easy many things could be solved if Clarkson was in charge But I do realize the flaws in many of his suggestions, so maybe it s a good thing he doesn t have that much to say in the british goverment But I laughed the whole way through this book, even when the topic was something utterly british that I didn t understand Well done Mr Clarkson.

  22. More of the same from Clarkson A bit grumpier than his first two World According to Clarkson His second volume was my favorite so far This one seemed to be a bit focused on small, individual situations, rather than broad, sweeping themes So not being British, caused some of the stories to be a bit over my head, but still somewhat relatable to what is going on over on this side of the Atlantic.

  23. The third volume in the series It s not really a book as such it s a collection of articles that Clarkson has written for The Times I think They are all a couple of years old, which means that some of the content is rather out of date When Clarkson talks about how well the country is doing economically for example.Each section is a couple of pages long, and they cover a huge range of topics I don t always agree with everything he says, but he s always very funny.

  24. I love these books, they are well written and extremely funny my husband banned me from reading this on the train as I embarressed him by laughing so much The articles are short enough to read in full if you only have a short break to grab a quick read and are guaranteed to have you in stitches Very true to life and that is what makes them funny, coupled with Clarksons writting style and attitude it can t not be a hit with many.

  25. I m a longtime fan of Top gear so am used to Clarksons brand of humour The feminist, pinko, lefty side of me bristles at his sexist, racists, pigheaded remarks, albeit calculated, but at the same time I think it s important to challenge the status quo It s interesting to read topical pieces from 10 years ago and I love all the affectionate references to Botswana, my current home I ve watched 27 series of top gear so I m pretty sure I ll read the other books as well.

  26. I know I shouldn t, but I loved it Clarkson is everyman s forty something, grumpy, dissatisfied, dismissive, discontent but, at the end of it all, he s quite content too.An antidote to the media set of metrosexuals who set so much of the tone of the BBC and the mainstream news, who else is going to inject common sense into a bloke s life Keep writing Jeremy.

  27. Typical Clarkson, irreverent but spot on Cuts through so much of the PC BS we have to live with today Be good, be nice, get on with it, how hard can that be I am sure that the pursed lip brigade would hate every word in this book, but if any have read it they are most certainly in need of help in recovering from unbridled indignation.g

  28. There are no shades of grey with Clarkson, you either love him or you hate him The same really applies to his books If you think Jeremy Clarkson is an unfunny, self opinionated, narcissistic, overpaid oaf, then don t read this book You ll hate it If you re in the other camp you ll love it I gave it 5 stars I think you can work out which camp I m in
