And he'd like to tell you what he thinks about some of the most awe-inspiring, earth-shatteringly fast and jaw-droppingly cool cars in the world (oh, and a few irredeemable disasters...). Or he would if he could just get one or two things off his chest first. Matters such as: the prospect of having Terry Wogan as president; why you'll never see a woman driving a Lexus; the unforeseen consequences of inadequate birth control; why everyone should spend a weekend with a digger. "Driven to Distraction" is Jeremy Clarkson at full throttle. So buckle up, sit tight and enjoy the ride. You're in for a hell of a lot of laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarkson at his best Nov. 4 2012
By Dougie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
No one can use the englsh language quite like Jeremy Clarkson .He has a gift of saying what we are thinking ---with a tongue in cheek and a rapier sharp wit.

Gave this book to my husband for Christmas. He's been reading and chuckling to himself ever since. Enough said!

5.0 out of 5 stars A rant a day keeps the doctor away Sept. 7 2010
Format:Paperback
Another reliable set of entertaining humorous diatribes and critical commentary from Jeremy Clarkson, attached somewhat loosely to reviews of recent car models. I keep it by my bedside for a relaxing read before dropping off to sleep. Jeremy gets all excited about stuff so I don't have to, and he's a guaranteed laugh, just what one needs at the end of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars `Buckle up, get comfortable and hold tight.' May 30 2010
By Jennifer Cameron-Smith TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Okay, so I confess to being a Top Gear fan. I'm not sure exactly when I moved from being a casual viewer to being a fan, but I suspect it has something to do with the indestructibility of the Toyota Hilux.

Anyway, this book really isn't about Top Gear. Instead it's a collection of articles written by Jeremy Clarkson which first appeared in the Sunday Times between January 2006 and December 2007. I've been reading it over the past couple of weeks, laughing out loud at some of Clarkson's thoughts and assertions and enjoying his thoughts about some of the cars he has driven. Some of his musings will make much more sense to those in the UK, but we can all wonder about some of Clarkson's other thorny issues. Except, Jeremy, I do know at least one woman who drives a Lexus. I'm wondering what that really means.

If you've never heard of Jeremy Clarkson, or Top Gear, and have no interest in cars then this may not be a book for you. On the other hand, if you are interested and didn't get to read the articles when they were published in the Sunday Times, you might be tempted.

Shipping was super fast, which was great. And the Christmas wrapping was a nice touch and saved me some time! Haven't read the book yet, but I'm sure it will be good.
