3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


How Hard Can It Be? is the fourth hilarious volume in Jeremy Clarkson's The World According to Clarkson series.

How hard can it be: To build a power station without upsetting the eco-mentalists?

To seek world domination if you've been hit the ugly stick?

For the Met Office to get yesterday's weather right?

In volume four of The World According to Clarkson, Jeremy Clarkson pours scorn on the nonsensical, the dumb, the idiotic and the plain foolish in his continuing quest to discover where exactly we've all gone wrong. Along the way he ponders: whether conquering France might solve the immigration problem; what happens when you ignore proper warning labels; and what would happen if we turned the internet off.

Often controversial, frequently scathing but always funnier than James May, Jeremy Clarkson shows us how we could so easily make the world a better place. "Brilliant ...laugh-out-loud". (Daily Telegraph). "Outrageously funny ...will have you in stitches". (Time Out). Number-one bestseller and presenter of the hugely popular Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections. Born To Be Riled, 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.

Review by

A book of the newspaper articles written by Jeremy Clarkson in 2008 and 2009. What more can you say? There is no storyline to explain - it is a sarcastic English man having a moan at any problem that occurs. It does not put the world right - it does not help - it makes you laugh and let off steam. Nothing more and nothing less.It covers subjects as conquering France would help the UK immigration problem, why expats are all weak, the Canadian Health Service and how it does not work, how you cannot work while on holiday.I had a laugh and a smile and even nodded at some of the solutions that came up (worrying that last bit). Now time to pick a proper book ;-)
