Is It Really Too Much To Ask?: The World According to Clarkson Volume 5


Formats & editions


The fifth volume in the mega-bestselling World According to Clarkson series.

Is It Really Too Much To Ask . . .

For short people to finally admit they're shrubs?
For Prince William to dress as Ronald MacDonald?
For children to learn to always let Dad win?

In volume five of The World According to Clarkson, Jeremy continues to beat a path of sense through the tangled forests of cluelessness and everyday idiocy.

On the way he suggests new ways to improve the world:
- Replacing Jobseeker's Allowance with bread and sherry
- Creating the sovereign state of Chipping Norton
- Putting a microchip in your genitals
- Yes, really

Pithy, provocative and considerably taller than Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson is at his best wrestling with the thorny issues of the age and showing us how it could all so easily be better than it is.

Is it really too much to ask?
