loved it, gave me the behind the scene look of my favorite show. goodbye top gear
Really good insight into the behind the scenes of the Top Gear phenomenon. Hearing the story from the person who wrote so much of the show helps understand the effort that went into the show.
The stories is interesting and well performed. However, the way the book is laid out doesn't always seem to flow from chapter to chapter very well and some of the anecdotes are a bit weak. It has the feeling of an essay that needs redrafting before submission and I wonder if this was due to rushing to get it out the door while top gear was fresh in minds.

I rejoined Audible after some 4 years away just so that I could listen to this book! And well worth it was too. Great narrative by Richard Porter who painted a very real picture of what it's like to work on Top Gear, what worked, what didn't work, and what was a lot more hassle than it was worth!
The only criticism I would dare to level at it is the length, it could have easily been twice as long and told a lot more stories from their travels, but Richard is a busy man!
Looking forward to the next one detailing life on the Grand Tour!

Brilliant, funny and in parts almost made me cry, we all know how how the story ends but it's intriguing to hear it from the inside.
It was great to get the view of someone who worked behind the scenes of what can only be described as " A one in a million " show. Most insightful.
