This is a collection of relatively short Clarkson articles about machines he thinks are inspiring. I don’t agree with all his choices, and many of the articles are clearly biased against America. For example, he insists that everyone on an aircraft carrier is stupid. Why? Because they didn’t let him film a fighter with one engine on fire. However, the book is funny, and good light reading. I read most of it on a bus for example. If you’re into Clarkson, then its worth reading.
