More anecdotes and tales from the Top Gear presenter. Hammond writes in an easy humorous style much like his television persona so all Top Gear fans will find this an entertaining read.

Synopsis

Or is That Just Me? by Richard Hammond

There is, I discovered, a technique to performing a low-rent, comedy motorcycle jump with a bad hip joint following a low-speed fall off a horse on to your wife's Land Rover keys... More of the wry, honest and often hilarious chronicles of Richard Hammond - TV presenter, adventurer and general drawer of the Short Straw. Continuing where AS YOU DO left off, OR IS THAT JUST ME? focuses on just a few of the many hair-raising stunts, expeditions and encounters experienced by Richard Hammond over the last eventful year.

Reviews

often funny and always self-deprecating, describing in detail how a supposedly glamorous life behind the camera is often beset by pratfalls and indignities * HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER * an enjoyable read but also reveals a sensitive side to the Hamster's personality * CATHOLIC HERALD *
