Is It Really Too Much To Ask? The World According to Clarkson Volume 5

The Real World   

Sue Baker's view...

This year’s ration of Jeremy Clarkson’s very politically incorrect writings collected from his Sunday Times columns. Witty, sharp, short pieces on a wide range of subjects sure to goad you into action - laughter if you’re a fan and a quick lob across the room if not!

Synopsis

Is It Really Too Much To Ask? The World According to Clarkson Volume 5 by Jeremy Clarkson

Is It Really Too Much To Ask? is the fifth book in Jeremy Clarkson's bestselling The World According to Clarkson series. Well, someone's got to do it: in a world which simply will not see reason, Jeremy sets off on another quest to beat a path of sense through all the silliness and idiocy. And there's no knowign what might catch Jeremy's eye along the way. It could be: the merits of Stonehenge as a business model; Why all meetings are a waste of time; the theft of the Queen's cows; one Norwegian man's unique approach to showing his gratitude; fitting a burglar alarm to a tortoise; or how Lou Reed was completely wrong about what makes a perfect day. Pithy and provocative, this is Clarkson at his best, taking issue with whatever nonsense gets in the way of his search for all that's worth celebrating. Why should we be forced to accept stuff that's a bit rubbish? Shouldn't things work? Why doesn't someone care? I mean, is it really too much to ask? It's a good thing we've still got Jeremy out there, still looking, without fear or favour, for the answers. Jeremy Clarkson becomes the hilarious voice of a nation once more in Is It Really Too Much To Ask?, Volume 5 of The World According To Clarkson, following bestselling titles The World According to Clarkson, And Another Thing, For Crying Out Loud and How Hard Can It Be? Praise for Clarkson: Brilliant...laugh-out-loud . (Daily Telegraph). Outrageously funny...will have you in stitches . (Time Out). Jeremy Clarkson began his writing career on the Rotherham Advertiser. He now writes for the Sun and the Sunday Times and is the tallest person working in British television.
