Penguin Global

"Born to be Riled" is a collection of hilarious vintage journalism from - bestselling author, "Top Gear" presenter, and columnist for both "The Sun" and the "Sunday Times" - Jeremy Clarkson. Jeremy Clarkson, it has to said, sometimes finds the world a maddening place. And nowhere more so than from behind the wheel of a car, where you can see any number of people acting like lunatics while in control (or not) of a ton of metal. In this collection of classic columns, first published in 1999, Jeremy takes a look at the world through his windscreen, shakes his head at what he sees - and then puts the boot in. Among other things, he explains: why Surrey is worse than Wales; how crossing your legs in America can lead to arrest; the reason cable TV salesmen must be punched; and that divorce can be blamed on the birth of Jesus Raving politicians, pointless celebrities, ridiculous 'personalities' and the Germans all get it in the neck, together with the stupid, the daft and the ludicrous, in a tour de force of comic writing guaranteed to have Jeremy's postman wheezing under sackfuls of letters from the easily offended. Number-one bestseller Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections. "Clarkson On Cars", "Don't Stop Me Now", "Driven To Distraction", "Round the Bend", "Motorworld", and "I Know You Got Soul" are also available as Penguin paperbacks; the "Penguin App iClarkson: The Book of Cars" can be downloaded on the App Store. His "The World According to Clarkson" series has sold over three million copies in the UK and places Clarkson frequently at the top of best seller lists.
