Eighteen countries. Five shock absorbers. Two bikers. One amazing adventure. After their fantastic trip round the world in 2004, fellow actors and bike fanatics Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. Inspired by their UNICEF visits to Africa, they knew they had to go back and experience this extraordinary continent in more depth. Joining up once more with producer/directors Russ Malkin and David Alexanian and the Long Way Round team, and with two new BMWs loaded up for the trip, their route took them from John O'Groats at the northernmost tip of Scotland to Cape Agulhas on the southernmost tip of South Africa. Riding though spectacular scenery, often in extreme temperatures, Ewan and Charley faced their hardest challenges yet. With their trademark humour and honesty, they tell their story: the drama, the dangers, and the sheer exhilaration of riding together again, though a continent filled with magic and wonder.More

The foundation of the book is that Charley and Ewan wanted to go on another long trip with as little hassle as possible whilst earning as much from merchandise as possible. This book is one of the parts of that story, but it feels like an aside, rather than a book in itself.
If you have seen the series don't bother with the book; there is very very little more in them (both of the series)
Is that thing diesel
I'm not sure who is who, but I am afraid to say that the english bloke did a much better Ewan than the scot.
