Clarkson, Jeremy "The World According to Clarkson, Vol. 2. And Another Thing" - 2006

I really enjoyed Jeremy Clarkson's first collection of articles "The World According to Clarkson" and therefore just had to read the next one. I enjoyed this a lot, too. Well, most of it.

In 'And Another Thing', our exasperated hero discovers that: he inadvertently dropped a bomb on North Carolina; we're all going to explode at the age of 62; Russians look bad in Speedos - but not as bad as we do; no one should have to worry about being Bill Oddie's long lost sister; and, he should probably be nicer about David Beckham. Thigh-slappingly funny and - as ever - in your face, Jeremy Clarkson bursts the pointless little bubbles of the idiots while celebrating the special, the unique and the sheer bloody brilliant..."
