Book review: "The world according to Clarkson"

[ #28293 ]
I bought this book when I was returning from the London Perl Workshop. Clarkson is a journalist/presentor, probably most known from the television program "Top Gear". But he also writes articles in the "Sunday Times", and this book contains a collection of them, approximately from the 2001-2003 era. Each article is about four pages long, and has Clarkson telling or ranting about a subject in his unique style. Other than you might expect, the articles aren't about cars - but almost everything passes the revue. Not a shocking book, but if you like Clarkson's style, it's an amusing way to pass time.

  • I bought it at the airport, on my way back from... the London Perl Workshop.

    I have postponed reading it so far (I got it to get rid of my last pounds, because it was discounted and because my wife loves Top Gear). Now I might give it a try though. Thanks.
