Born to be Riled

By Jeremy Clarkson

Clarkson, it has to be said, sometimes finds the world a maddening place. And nowhere more so than from behind the wheel of a car, where you can see any number of people acting like lunatics while in control (or not) of a ton of metal. In Born to be Riled, Clarkson takes a look at the world through his windscreen, shakes his head at what he sees – and then puts the boot in.

Among other things, he explains: why Surrey is worse than Wales, how crossing your legs in America can lead to arrest, the reason cable TV salesmen must be punched and that divorce can be blamed on the birth of Jesus.

Raving politicians, pointless celebrities, ridiculous ‘personalities’ and the Germans all get it in the neck, together with the stupid, the daft and ludicrous. This is a tour de force of comic writing guaranteed to have Clarkson’s postman wheezing under sacks full of letters from the easily offended.
