    It was quite fun searching for books on Scribd after I signed up on the site and of course since I'm a big Top Gear did I just have to search for books concerning the program and its presenters and I found this book. This may not be the deepest biography written I have read, but it was entertaining and quite informative and I quite like Jeremy Clarkson so I enjoyed the book.

    An amazing book... in 265 pages it manages to tell you absolutely nothing. Repetitive, fawning, ill laid out and with a surprising lack of facts. Except one very notable exception where the author has copied a 6 page extract from Wikipedia to summarise one of his programmes. 6 pages? From Wikipedia? The rebrand of Top Gear didn't get half as many pages. And she hasn't even see fit to mention Tiff Needell. James and Richard don't even get a mention 'til over 200 pages in, and then it is just a me An amazing book... in 265 pages it manages to tell you absolutely nothing.

The rebrand of Top Gear didn't get half as many pages. And she hasn't even see fit to mention Tiff Needell. James and Richard don't even get a mention 'til over 200 pages in, and then it is just a mention. In fact, apart from his relationship with his wife, his mother, and AA Gill, there has been no details of any other partnerships. I know no more about his father, his sister, his co-presenters, Elaine Bedell... You might think the book was worth it for all the quotations but frankly, if you've read his books or seen his programmes you'll have heard them all before. In fact, there's nothing in this book that you won't already know as a fan just from watching him. Most of it is lifted directly from his books or columns. I think I learnt more about Robert Cain from the 6 page Wikipedia extract than I did about Clarkson in the whole book. And while I'm as interested as any Top Gear fan in Richard Hammond's crash, this book is not the place to be discussing it. Clarkson's thoughts and feelings, yes, but Hammond's recollections, no. In short, if you're interested in his feud with Piers Morgan, you'd be better off reading 'The Insider'. If you want to know about Hammond's crash, read 'On the Edge'. If you want to know more about Clarkson, read his own books.

    Gwen Russell, as a professional writer, should be ashamed of this book. It seems to have been thrown together in a few days from newspaper and magazine articles. It is very badly written, continuously repeats a few points and leaves one with the feeling of skating over a thin veneer of a rich subject. There is little structure to the book, other than a rough chronology, with no real attempt to examine its topic. Early parts of the book were almost gushing as Ms. Russell heaped uncritical praise Gwen Russell, as a professional writer, should be ashamed of this book. It seems to have been thrown together in a few days from newspaper and magazine articles. It is very badly written, continuously repeats a few points and leaves one with the feeling of skating over a thin veneer of a rich subject. There is little structure to the book, other than a rough chronology, with no real attempt to examine its topic. Early parts of the book were almost gushing as Ms. Russell heaped uncritical praise on her subject, seemingly from the viewpoint of a teenage girl with a crush. Ms. Russell also displays as much knowledge of the rules of grammar as a teenage rioter does of etiquette. I trust that someone who can actually write will put together a reasonable biography of Mr. Clarkson, because he is undoubtedly a worthy subject. I can only hope that more people hear about the poor quality of this book before being tempted to buy it because of their interest in the subject. To think that Gwen Russell is making money from this pitiful work, on the back of that interest, is galling. P.S. I joined this website simply so that I could provide this review!

    Forgettable and slightly bland. There are some chapters that focus on Jezza's wife and in-laws a bit, but the book itself is quite dull. Written in a flat monotone, the book lacks insights the average Top Gear/JC fan doesn't about. What's more even though I'm a die-hard Jezza fan it would have been nice if the writer took a page out of Jezza's book, be a little more outspoken and shed a little more light on some of the man's shortcomings instead of ending every chapter with endless praise for Cl Forgettable and slightly bland.

Most of what Mrs. Russell writes is everything we already know and it sounds like she's gushing most of the time.

    Boring, repetitive, badly written. A pity since Clarkson is a very interesting person, if he writes an autobiography I'll read it but I can't recommend this rubbish.
