Review: "The publication of The World According to Clarkson in 2004 launched a multi-million-copy bestselling phenomenon. But to no avail. Jeremy's one-man war on crimes against common sense has not yet been won. And our hero's still scratching his head at the madness of it all. But it's not all bad. He's learned a little along the way, including: why binge drinking is good for you; the worst word in the English language; the remarkable secret of eternal youth; the pleasure and pain of middle-aged drumming; the problem with America; and how to dispose of a seal." "For anyone who's been driven to wonder just what is the matter with people these days, For Crying Out Loud is the perfect riposte, Surprising, fearless and always laugh-out-loud funny, Clarkson's back. And he's got a point..."--BOOK JACKET.
