    This is the full story of the unstoppable rise of Clarkson, Hammond, May and The Stig – and how they have transformed an ordinary programme about cars into one of the most famous and best-loved TV programmes of the 21st century. Reaching a peak in the 1990s thanks to presenter Jeremy Clarkson, the original series then faced the axe in 2001 – but Clarkson and producer Andy Wilman successfully pitched a new format to BBC bosses and Top Gear returned to become the irreverent, funny and often controversial show we now know and love.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Top Gear Story?

    Just a written summary of top gear episodes nothing we didn't already know.


    What could Martin Roach have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Gotten interviews with the members of the top gear team instead of relying on secondhand tales.


    What does Jerome Pride bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The book was pure bilge and didn't finish it, this was no fault of Jerome Pride, probably wouldn't have gotten as far as I did without him!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Jerome Pride an excellent narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Save your money or credits and don't buy this, watch Top Gear instead!
