What Could Possibly Go Wrong… by Jeremy Clarkson
© 2014 Penguin (ISBN 9780718180225)

There is probably no one who can write about cars like Jeremy Clarkson. In fact, you can apply almost any description like that about Jeremy – there is no one like him.

Most car journalists are fixated with horsepower, economy and speed, the Top Gear host has a slightly different approach.

Sampling the best of his review columns from the Sunday Times newspaper, What Could Possibly Go Wrong… focuses exclusively on car reviews, with the odd bit of commentary – much of it being his traditionally politically incorrect sort – thrown in for good measure.

Whether he’s building a case for the invasion of France, suggesting that (of all places) Denmark is the best country in the world, or remarking on the pointlessness of the koala, you can guarantee yourself a few chuckles along the way.

Oh, and there are some car reviews in there too. Even if the motors he’s tested are from the top end of the spectrum – Aston Martins, Ferraris or Jaguars – no favour is given or criticism spared. That’s exactly the way it should be.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong… is avavailable at all major bookstores. Our review copy was kindly provided to us by Penguin Australia.
