Another Day’s Holiday? Please, Give Me a Break
According to a poll, the vast majority of people questionedas they struggled back to work last week thoughtthat England should have followed Scotland’s lead andmade Tuesday a bank holiday.Two things strike me as odd here. First, that anyonecould be bothered to undertake such research and,second, that anyone in their right mind could think thatthe Christmas break was in some way too short.I took ten days off and by 11 o’clock on the first morningI had drunk fourteen cups of coffee, read all thenewspapers and the Guardian and then . . . and then what?By lunchtime I was so bored that I decided to hang afew pictures. So I found a hammer, and later a man cameto replaster the bits of wall I had demolished. Then Itried to fix the electric gates, which work only whenthere’s an omega in the month. So I went down thedrive with a spanner, and later another man came to putthem back together again.I was just about to start on the Aga, which had brokendown on Christmas Eve, as they do, when my wife tookme on one side by my earlobe and explained that buildersdo not, on the whole, spend their spare time writing, sowriters should not build on their days off. It’s expensiveand it can be dangerous, she said. She’s right. We have these lights in the dining roomwhich are supposed to project stars onto the table below.It has never really bothered me that the light seeps outof the sides so the stars are invisible; but when you arebored, this is exactly the sort of thing that gets on yournerves.So I bought some gaffer tape and suddenly my life hada purpose. There was something to do.Mercifully, Christmas intervened before I could doany more damage, but then it went away again and oncemore I found myself staring at the day through the wrongend of a pair of binoculars. Each morning, bed and theblessed relief of unconsciousness seemed so far away.I wore a groove in the kitchen floor with endless tripsto the fridge, hoping against hope that I had somehowmissed a plateful of cold sausages on the previous 4,000excursions. Then, for no obvious reason, I decided tobuy a footstool.I took the entire family to the sort of gifty-wifty shopwhere the smell of pot-pourri is so pungent that it makesyou go cross-eyed. Even though the children were lyingon the floor gagging, I still spent hours deliberatelychoosing a footstool that was too small and the wrongcolour so that I could waste some more time taking itback.The next day, still gently redolent of Delia Smith’sknicker drawer, I decided to buy the wrong sort ofantique filing cabinet. But after the footstool debacle mywife said no. So it seemed appropriate that I shoulddevelop some kind of illness. This is a good idea whenyou are at a loose end because everything, up to andincluding herpes, is better than being bored.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jeremy Clarkson, shares his opinions on just about everything in The World According to Clarkson.

Jeremy Clarkson has seen rather more of the world than most. He has, as they say, been around a bit. And as a result, he's got one or two things to tell us about how it all works - and being Jeremy Clarkson he's not about to voice them quietly, humbly and without great dollops of humour.

In The World According to Clarkson, he reveals why it is that:
• Too much science is bad for our health
• '70s rock music is nothing to be ashamed of
• Hunting foxes while drunk and wearing night-sights is neither big nor clever
• We must work harder to get rid of cricket
• He liked the Germans (well, sometimes)

With a strong dose of common sense that is rarely, if ever, found inside the M25, Clarkson hilariously attacks the pompous, the ridiculous, the absurd and the downright idiotic, whilst also celebrating the eccentric, the clever and the sheer bloody brilliant.

Less a manifesto for living and more a road map to modern life, The World According to Clarkson is the funniest book you'll read this year. Don't leave home without it.

The World According to Clarkson is a hilarious collection of Jeremy's Sunday Times columns and the first in his The World According to Clarkson series which also includes And Another Thing . . . , For Crying Out Loud! and How Hard Can It Be?

Praise for Jeremy Clarkson:

'Brilliant . . . laugh-out-loud' Daily Telegraph
'Outrageously funny . . . will have you in stitches' Time Out

Number-one bestseller and presenter of the hugely popular Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections. Born To Be Riled, Clarkson On Cars, Don't Stop Me Now, Driven To Distraction, Round the Bend, Motorworld, and I Know You Got Soul are also available as Penguin paperbacks; the Penguin App iClarkson: The Book of Carscan be downloaded on the App Store.

Si vous aimez Top Gear ce livre est fait pour vous. Ce n'est pas une biographie comme celle de Hammond (si vous n'avez pas encore lu ses livres je vous invite à le faire) il s'agit d'une collection d'articles de Jeremy Clarkson qu'il a écrite pour le Times. C'est très drôle et on à l'impression d'entendre sa voix quand on lit. Son ton narquois, irrévérencieux, moqueur, râleur et fonce dans le tas, bref c'est Clarkson et c'est pour ça qu'on l'aime.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Typical Clarkson. Laugh out loud hilarity! 11 juin 2016
Par m. angel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What a great compendium of Clarksons' Sunday Times articles. Me being an American imbecile that knows nothing of British humour (wink) even I can appreciate his, well "Clarksonesque" view of a broad range of topics from international travels, local and international politics and his deep love-for and appreciation of all things mechanical, especially aeroplanes. This is a must read for anyone just looking for a laugh.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun, light-hearted reading 25 juillet 2016

Most enjoyable. I have lived abroad for many years and not followed many English programs so I was not especially aware of who Clarkson was. Now I know.His humor is wonderful and exactly what grabs my attention. The first book was recommended to me by an American friend. "Here," he said, "You're English, you'll enjoy this book. He was right.
An easy, light read, good for putting you in a fun frame of mind. Definitely recommend. That's why I have bought further editions for me and a friend. The Slope of Kongwa Hill: A Boy's Tale of Africa.

Hopefully very tongue in cheek, should be more like Clarkson !!! Good reading when travelling or between other books. Will read more of his books and will try and catch up with his series on TV.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An Interesting Look at the World 8 mai 2016

You really need to be a resident of the UK to understand most of the book, but the humor is still international. Just be aware that the whole book is a reprint of his daily column that has been formed into a book. Good read and often insightful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rolling on the floor 5 décembre 2012
Par Anna Haning - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been literally rolling on the floor reading this book in kindle electronic edition. The thing is not only it is funny but he's just so right about many issues. I like it especially when he ridicules British government as we all can relate to some legislation introduced to us that we strongly disagree with or have a different view about than our authorities. My faves are 'Sorry, Hans, brassy Brits rule the beaches now'; (I agree with Clarkson on Germans, Russians and Americans, their habits and fashion sense lol). But really every chapter was a blast. Have a look at some titles:'Life itself is offensive, so stop complaining';, 'Yes, it used to be grim up north - now it's grimmer'; 'I have now discovered the highest form of life: wasps'; 'Let's break all Tony's laws' (appeals greatly to a rebel in me);, 'Good riddance to green rubbish' (Clarkson hates all the eco-friendly blubber and rules that oftentimes don't even make sense and do not help the environment at all, just create hassle for us all); 'My burning hate for patio heaters'; and heaps more - their provoking titles alone will send you in stitches.
