Jeremy Clarkson is an English journalist and writer best known for his work on the television show Top Gear and, later, The Grand Tour. He also writes weekly columns for The Sunday Times and The Sun. He’s also had numerous humorous books published about cars and other subjects, along with collections of his articles.

Clarkson’s first job was as a travelling salesman who sold Paddington Bear, but he later trained to be a journalist. He’s worked for multiple publications, but it was the Shropshire Star who gave him his first outlet as a motoring columnist. This was his passion and later lead to him being cast on Top Gear. Clarkson also received an honorary Doctor of Engineering degree from the Oxford Brookes University.

If You Like Jeremy Clarkson Books, You’ll Love…

The World According to Clarkson is the first volume in a series of the same name. The book shares many of Clarkson’s unique and humorous viewpoints on life. He covers the important topics like why too much science could be bad for your health, why hunting foxes while drunk and wearing night-sights is not a good idea, and why he liked the Germans. He peppers his stories with humor while also attacking the pompous in a common sense way.

Clarkson returns in Really? and this is him near the end of his tether. His love of cars has gotten him through some tough times, especially now. He covers unique topics such as why nothing good ever gets done in meetings, why we have to share the planet with people who read online reviews of dishwashers, and what the pint of a driver-less car is. Clarkson maintains his curiosity about the world and the high level of enthusiasm he has for finding out more while keeping his trademark humor.
