Description

Best known as the third presenter in the unholy trinity that is Clarkson, Hammond and May on Top Gear, James has lived, breathed and dreamt about cars his entire life. He has written about them over several years in a large number of periodicals. His pieces have appeared in "Car Magazine", "The Scotsman", "Country Life" and the "Daily Express", as well as his regular columns in "Top Gear" magazine and the "Daily Telegraph". There is something about cars that stirs up intense feelings in people - how it makes them look to the outside world, how it makes them feel about themselves, how it looks to their girlfriends or their mates, or their neighbours. These feelings are humorously described in "May on Motors", as James takes us on the road and looks at the cars that have shaped him, his world and the ordinary people of Britain. In "May on Motors", James has brought together his most controversial and amusing pieces to make a brilliant collection that will amuse and inspire all car enthusiasts.show more
