Publisher's Summary

From political correctness to cars, Top Gear's James May is back with his hilarious and controversial opinions on...just about everything.

As well as writing about his first love, cars, James has a go at political correctness, the endless rules and regulations of daily life, the internal combustion engine, and traffic wardens. He discusses gastropubs, Jeremy Clarkson, and other trials of modern life. His highly entertaining observations from behind the wheel will have you laughing out loud, whether you share his opinions or not.

Car Fever is an indispensable guide to life for the modern driver.

©2009 James May; (P)2009 Hodder & Stoughton

    "Clever and easy plain talk by James"
    Where does Car Fever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Midpack


    If you’ve listened to books by James May before, how does this one compare?

    Same as the others


    What about James May’s performance did you like?

    Great speaking voice


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Didn't matter... it took a few sittings


    Any additional comments?

    I always thought James May was the more clever and proper of the three Top Gear englishmen. And here in this book he continues that. Basically, this book is just random thoughts that he's jotted down on paper and somebody convinced him to read it into a microphone.
    Pleasant listening.

    "All James and nothing but James"

    If you are a fan of Top Gear UK and ever wondered what it would be like if you couldn't see the TV and James was the only host that week... this is it.

    "Always interesting"

    I like James May, obviously through TOP GEAR, but also his standalone programmes. This book is funny, informative and a damn good listen.
