New book to read - The World According to Clarkson "is it really too much to ask?"

Got this book from MPH over the weekend.

Jeremy Clarkson is a very opinionated person and this makes for good read. Don't be too hard-up on what he has to say but to take it with a pinch of salt. Very entertaining.

The book is made out of articles he wrote and published in newspapers. I especially like the one about letting Scotland go (written in 2010) to help the debt crisis in Britain. Fits in uncannily with the independence vote for Scotland that was just completed a few days ago (still part of Britain).

He also wrote about why Turkey should not be part of the EU. Only in Nato yes. His argument " let your policemen take care of your street and property but it doesn't mean you want him in your living room...". I think this one statement says it all about how they (collectively) think about themselves vis-a-vis the rest of us.
