Born to be Riled

Jeremy Clarkson

Jeremy Clarkson, it has to be said, sometimes finds the world a maddening place. And nowhere more so than from behind the wheel of a car, where you can see any number of people acting like lunatics while in control (or not) of a ton of metal. In Born to be Riled, Clarkson takes a look at the world through his windscreeen, shakes his head at what he sees – and then puts the boot in.

Among other things, he explains

• why Surrey is worse than Wales

• how crossing your legs in America can lead to arrest

the reason cable TV salesmen must be punched

• that divorce can be blamed on the birth of Jesus

Raving politicians, pointless celebrities, ridiculous ‘personalities’ and the Germans all get it in the neck, together with the stupid, the daft and ludicrous in a tour de force of comic writing guaranteed to have Clarkson’s postman wheezing under sackfuls of letters from the easily offended.

Jeremy Clarkson is the presenter of Top Gear. He writes for Top Gear Magazine and the Sunday Times.
