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 *
