How Hard Can It Be? The World According to Clarkson: Jeremy Clarkson, March 25—26, 2015
My rating: ♦♦♦♦◊
In view of recent events, it seemed a good time to see what Jeremy Clarkson had to say for himself. Quite a lot as it happens,
How Hard Can It Be? is an anthology of Clarkson’s column entries from 2008 to 2010, and while the subject matter is varied, his attitudes and directness are not. He claims that he will speak sense, and in actual fact he does most of the time. He is, generally speaking, opposed to red tape, bureaucracy and overdoing political correctness. He might be putting it bluntly, but in many cases he’s simply saying what we’re all thinking.
His wit is razor sharp and unapologetic, and it’s hard not to laugh at loud at some of his admittedly outrageous remarks.
In one sitting, it gets a bit wearing but remember these columns were published weekly; it’s perhaps better suited to your bathroom for dipping in and out of than for a long-haul flight, but it certainly won’t fail to entertain you.
(PS – this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be sacked for punching a colleague.)
