|About the Book|
Top Gear is one of the most successful television shows of all time.Each episode pulls in some 350 million viewers in 170 countries.According to the Guinness Book of Records it is the most widely watched factual TV show in the world and the franchise is thought to be worth $1.5 billion.Although there are two other presenters on the show, it is Clarkson who takes the plaudits and fends off the brickbats.He is the star who has built it up from being a minor motoring programme on a minority TV channel to a global phenomenon.On television, Clarkson is larger than life.His secret is simple. Both on air and in his newspaper columns, he says what he thinks – about cars and any other subject under the sun – usually in the most robust fashion imaginable.But who is the real Jeremy Clarkson?Behind the scenes, what makes him tick?Motormouth is a concise, in-depth biography that, like Clarkson himself, pulls no punches. It is not for the faint-hearted. Anyone who reads the Guardian, eats muesli or wears sandals should look away now…A great biography of a great writer. - Tome Kasey, best-selling author of Trade Off.Nigel Cawthorne is the author of some eighty books - and a major contributor to at least twenty more, including ‘Che Guevara: The Last Conquistador’ and ‘The Empress of South America’.
