Can you make things go faster: Clarkson

Written by on December 26, 2020 in Book Club, Self Help

Opening the book, I was surprised that Jeremy Clarkson is such a wordsmith as I only know him from the Top Gear show where we saw him driving fast cars in different weird scenarios with his two friends. Clearly he has lots to say as he has almost 15 books to his name. I can’t but help reading this book with his voice in my head reading it along with me. This book is a collection of Jeremy’s Sunday column. It seems to deal with his insight in UK happenings and politics with his unique understanding. Most of what was written is most probably well received when it was written as it most probably deals with hot topics of that week in the UK. He gives is own unique commentary on all different situations most probably were faced in the UK, Europe. UKIP’s leaders marriage, Oxfam Belgian worker debacle, Brexit and seems to be obsessed about talking about Jeremy Corbyn, his take on who wants to be millionare was canned in UK in 2014, problem with population control and much much more. He has lots of personal insight about people he writes about and some of their personal situations. He talks about manbags, how we are spoilt for choice, fakery. This book does not resonate with me as I am not so familiar with UK politics and relevant issues. Also I try my best stay away from the news if I can help it, it keeps me sane and I am not so familiar about some of the things he talks about . I personally thought it was about cars and how his life changes from living in the fast lane to becoming a farmer. Reading some of the scenarios it is written true to his style, cynically babble about issues facing and give his tongue and cheek way of solving problem some of it in his own witty way. Nice tongue and cheek mention of Matt Le Blanc from Friends.

These days, you might know him better as a tractor-driving Gentleman Farmer, but Jeremy Clarkson wasn’t always a horny-handed son of the soil. Not at all… Back in the day Jeremy was far more likely to be found gunning around the world in a haze of burnt rubber and petrol fumes. But life as a globe-trotting petrol-head also meant he was forced endure more than his fair share of foolishness, frustration and downright bafflement. And, while Jeremy may not be a patient man, you have to ask why anyone should have to consider issues as diverse and perplexing as: – The downsides of relaxing in a bath of crude oil- Why fishing is for people who hate their kids- Whether there are noise-cancelling headphones with the power to silence James May- Why saving the planet means soggy paper straws and no more children- What to do about the rambler who stole his marrow But as puzzling and exasperating as life on the road often seemed to be, you could always count on Jeremy to set the world to rights with a rare wit and unique understanding. And at full throttle. Just don’t expect it to all go smoothly…
