By Richard Hammond
Weidenfeld & Nicholson: 2008
Richard Hammond is best known as The Hamster, the shortest of the three presenters on the BBC’s hugely successful Top Gear television programme. I am quite a fan of the show and took the opportunity to borrow the book when it was offered to me. To be quite frank, I wasn’t expecting all that much from it, but I thought it just might throw some light behind the scenes of Top Gear.
