About this deal

In essence, this book is not just a hilarious account of a motoring journalist-turned-farmer; it's a hat tip to the unsung heroes of the farming world, served with a side of classic Clarkson humour.

It covers general farm stuff, from tractors (Jeremy’s is a Lamborghini), the problems of hitching up anything to said tractor and the problem of fitting that tractor into the shed. Whether it's a gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself, this book guarantees a fantastic reading experience.This is the companion book to the TV series, and actually previews it, because it’s the publication of his articles for the Sunday Times. While his personality and outspoken nature have generated both praise and controversy, there's no denying his enduring influence on the automotive and entertainment industries. All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you!

The small illustrations are ded good when each chapter arrives; nice that Kaleb Cooper and Cheerful Charlie get mentioned quite as bit also. Follow Jeremy as he embarks on the challenge of farming on an idyllic plot of land in the Cotswolds. I do feel sorry for Jeremy,I didn’t realise how hard the government and local councils make it for farmers.He has become a cultural icon, synonymous with fast cars, witty one-liners, and a distinctive irreverence. Pull on your wellies, grab your flat cap and join Jeremy Clarkson in this hilarious and fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the infamous Diddly Squat FarmTHE NO. I mostly read this because after working at DEFRA the world of farming suddenly becomes a lot more interesting so I was intrigued to get Clarkson's take on it. Registered office address: Unit 34 Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EF. Since the mid-1990s Clarkson has become a recognised public personality, regularly appearing on British television presenting his own shows and appearing as a guest on other shows.

He also describes how a crop lost most of its value after paying for a truck to transport it, then losing money because of excess moisture. Clarkson began his career as a journalist, writing for several newspapers and magazines, including The Rotherham Advertiser and the BBC's Top Gear magazine. The result is a narrative that showcases someone venturing into unfamiliar territory, navigating the world of farming with determination, despite lacking expertise, and often disregarding well-intentioned advice. He definitely raises great points on how UK farmers are fighting a losing battle not only against traditional foes like bugs and weather, but red tape and bureaucracy. Jeremy may never succeed in becoming master of his land, but, as he's discovering, the fun lies in the trying .

Fortunately, there's help at hand from a large and (mostly) willing team, including girlfriend Lisa, Kaleb the Tractor Driver, Cheerful Charlie, Ellen the Shepherd and Gerald, his Head of Security and Dry Stone Waller. I enjoyed comparing what I know of Aussie farming with Clarkson’s experience in the UK (I still can’t get over that each field has a name). You'll feel the warmth of the sun on your face as he ploughs through fields, witness the breathtaking sunsets that reward a hard day's work, and experience the relentless rhythm of farm life. And now, the laughs, the challenges, and the triumphs of Clarkson's hilarious farming misadventures are captured in all their glory within the pages of Diddly Squat!
