Every year, Top Gear dispatches correspondents to cover many serious stories around the world. Wherever they go, they ask tough questions and leave no stone unturned in search of the cold, hard truth. Questions such as: Is it possible to drive a Ferrari up a Scottish ski slope? Exactly how far can you drive a bulldozer across the Antarctic before it falls down a big crack? And what happens when you drive a small 4X4 up a volcano, during an earthquake, with a high chance of eruption? The answers to all of the above – and more – can be found in Top Gear Top Drives, a new book featuring Top Gear’s best adventures, neatly arranged in precise geographic order: top, middle and bottom. These are not Sunday drives to country pubs. You will not find any mentions of freshly cut grass and picnics under oak trees. In fact, you are more likely to encounter roadside landmines and a pack of Chilean llamas with a relaxed approach to personal hygiene. Of course you will also find supercars on winding mountain passes, but this book goes much further, bringing you the most unusual combinations of car and tarmac – or lack of it – from across our planet. All of which are accompanied by a surprisingly useful collection of travel tips, featuring such useful advice as when to go, what the weather’s like and where to find a reasonably priced beer. Like any classic travel guide, you really shouldn’t leave home without it. Unless you write down the really important bits, in which case you’ll probably be OK.

The poems you will read in this book came to me as they did in my first book, Poems by Joe in many different ways. Some are the results of news broadcast or from a program while listening to the raido. Others, while people watching or just sitting and allowing my mind to wander. Even so, some were very painful to write, such as the fire that destroyed a day care center in northern Mexico where over 40 children died as a result of the flames and fumes. Tearfully I wrote the the poem, Why This Way. An article in our local newspaper about women and young girls being raped so freely in South Africa inspired me to write the poem, It's All Free. However, there are some that I wrote are family related. My Sister Winnie, Her Light, Until Tomorrow plus the Other Side, and Judy. On the lighter side you will find, No Ordinary Bird, Hurricane Kate and Our Friend Joe, quite amusing. You will find that all the poems are clear and uncomplicated to read.

In 1964 Brian Bold hitchhikes from London to Geneva to find his fourth girlfriend and so begins a journey of over forty years. Driving more than twenty cars, nearly every one he's owned, he travels along the minor roads of personal fortune and the motorways of social and technological change. Travelling but never quite arriving, he breaks down on the way to the Beatles' Cavern Club in Liverpool on the night of Kennedy's assassination, races an Austin Maestro at the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, has a secret meeting with John Major the Prime Minister, and dresses up in another man's clothes. Often hilarious, sometimes poignant, always engaging, these stories of a family, told through the car journeys they make, will probably provide echoes to your own driving history. Read this as a love story, a travelogue, a memoir, as well as perhaps the longest road story ever told
