    Description"The Top Gear Years" brings together Jeremy Clarkson's collected magazine columns for the first time. Clarkson at his pithy, provocative, hilarious best. We now know all about the world according to Clarkson. In a series of bestselling books Jeremy has revealed it to be a puzzling, frustrating place where all too often the lunatics seem to be running the asylum. But in "The Top Gear Years", we get something rather different. Because ten years ago, at an ex-RAF aerodrome in Surrey, Jeremy and his friends built a world that was rather more to his liking: they called it "Top Gear" HQ. And "Top Gear" is for Jeremy what the jungle is for Tarzan: the perfect place to work and play. But they didn't stop there...With this corner of Surrey sorted out, Jeremy and the boys decided to have a crack at the rest of the world. With "Top Gear Live" charging through with the subtlety of a touring heavy rock band and far flung outposts across the globe from North America to China - an empire of petrol-headed upon which the sun never set. And all along Jeremy was writing about it in "Top Gear" magazine. Here, collected for the first time, are the fruits of his labours: the cars, the hijinx, the pleasure and the pain. Brilliantly written and laugh out loud funny. "The Top Gear Years" follows Jeremy Clarkson's many bestselling titles including "Round the Bend" and "The World" according to "Clarkson" series. Praise for Jeremy Clarkson: "Jeremy Clarkson is very funny and his well-honed political incorrectness is a joy." ("Daily Telegraph"). Jeremy Clarkson began his writing career on the Rotherham Advertiser. Since then he has written for the "Sun", the "Sunday Times", the "Rochdale Observer", the Wolverhampton "Express & Star", all of the Associated Kent Newspapers and Lincolnshire Life. Today he is the tallest person working in British television.
