Top Gears fans all over the world rejoiced as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May returned to our screens with The Grand Tour earlier this year. THE GRAND TOUR GUIDE TO THE WORLD is part travel companion, part factually dubious encyclopaedia and part scrapbook of a travelling circus, all told through the juvenile, egotistical yet undeniably amusing voices of our three favourite petrolheads.Inspired by the presenters' travels in the course of making the programme, the book includes behind-the-scenes photos captioned by Clarkson, Hammond and May, not-entirely-serious guides to many of the countries visited during the show, and tongue-in-cheek hints for travellers such as how best to pass through an airport, how to pack for varied climates and how to make yourself understood in different parts of the world.For petrolheads, the book boasts plenty of car-based features with a global theme, including a look at the world's coolest police cars, a Top Trumps fight between the planet's fastest supercars, a look a different nations' attempts to create a true car of the people, and a run-down of different driving customs from around the world. THE GRAND TOUR GUIDE TO THE WORLD will also contain behind-the-scenes trivia from the making of the TV show, the presenters' personal picks of their favourite places in the world for car-based `cocking about', and a spoof guide to the noms de plume that Clarkson, Hammond and May use when checking into hotels.THE GRAND TOUR GUIDE TO THE WORLD is a look at the people, places and cars of the planet, as seen through the witty, silly, often obtuse eyes of three middle-aged men who have been there and done that, and then had to go back later to apologise for all the damage.

Author description

The Grand Tour stars Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as three middle aged men who should know better. The trio previously worked on an obscure BBC car show before hitting the big time with The Grand Tour which is an epic show about adventure, excitement and friendship. As long as you accept that the people you call friends are also the ones you find most annoying.
