As You Do : Adventures with Evel, Oliver and the Vice-President of Botswana Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The life and times of the No.1 bestselling author of ON THE EDGE. The wry, honest and often hilarious chronicles of a very brave and clever TV presenter, Arctic Explorer and general drawer of the Short Straw.

As one third of the BBC's Top Gear team, Richard Hammond's year since his near-fatal accident has been full of stunts and drama.

From a race to the North Pole (with skis and dog-sled) to a journey through Botswana in a car named Oliver, and a seventeen-mile run through floods to his Gloucestershire home, in order to get to his daughter's birthday party, the year has been eventful, to say the least ...With his boundless optimism in the face of certain failure, Richard Hammond has become one of our funniest writers about a life (and a job) which constantly present a challenge.

Review by

I read this right after reading a Jeremy Clarkson book, and it felt a little odd at first as their styles of writing are different. But once I got into it after ten pages or so, it was so much fun!<br/><br/>You learn little things about how they film Top Gear (specifically the Polar special and the amphibious cars) as well as insight into how frustrating and boring it can all be.<br/><br/>A very interesting book, and I definitely recommend it if you're a fan of Mr Hammond :)
