Clarkson Jeremy

What Could Possibly Go Wrong...

What Could Possibly Go Wrong... : 2.6 (190)
Genre: publicism
No one writes about cars like Jeremy Clarkson. While most correspondents are too buys diving straight into BHP, MPG and MPH, Jeremy appreciates that there are more important things to life. Dont worry, well get to the cars. Eventually. But first we should consider:

The case for invading France
The overwhelming appeal of a nice sit-down
The inconvenience of gin and tonic
Why clothes are no better than ice cream
Spot-welding with the Duchess of Kent
And why Denmark is the best place in the world

Armed only with conviction, curiosity, enthusiasm and a stout pair of trousers, Jeremy hurtles around the world along motorway, autoroute, freeway and autobahn in search of answers to lifes puzzles and ponderings without forethought or fear for his own safety. What, you have to ask, could possibly go wrong

The contents of this book first appeared in Jeremy Clarksons Sunday Times column. Read more about the world according to Clarkson every week in The Sunday Times.
