As well as writing about his first love, cars, James has a go at political correctness, the endless rules and regulations of daily life, the internal combustion engine, and traffic wardens. He discusses gastropubs, Jeremy Clarkson, and other trials of modern life. His highly entertaining observations from behind the wheel will have you laughing out loud, whether you share his opinions or not.
Car Fever is an indispensable guide to life for the modern driver.

I like James May, obviously through TOP GEAR, but also his standalone programmes. This book is funny, informative and a damn good listen.
"Clever and easy plain talk by James"
Same as the others
Great speaking voice
Didn't matter... it took a few sittings
I always thought James May was the more clever and proper of the three Top Gear englishmen. And here in this book he continues that. Basically, this book is just random thoughts that he's jotted down on paper and somebody convinced him to read it into a microphone.
Looking forward to Jame's audio books as he has a really good narrative voice.
"James May Reading His Book: ENTERTAINING!"
Loved it! It's great just to chill out with James May. It's quite like I would imagine going to the pub with him would be like. He writes in separate commentaries/essays. Similar to his other books, like Notes From The Hard Shoulder. I like that he reads his own audiobooks. It's very entertaining. He's an interesting bloke.
"Entertaining, but not quite 5 stars"
Not a ton of substance, but witty British humor at it's finest. It would've been nice to have more car related materials, and it was a bit short.
its James may nothing else nothing more than brilliant. I listen to Lewis black to rev me up then James to mellow out
"May at his sublime best!!"
Very very funny!!
the very random connection to certain car models!!
His very droll yet brilliant delivery!!
Laugh out loud funny!!
"James May just the way you expect him to be"
I will listen to it again. His droll wit carries into his books.
James May it is a personal narrative.
Mr. Slow in the Fast Lane (but please don't make a movie)
"All James and nothing but James"
If you are a fan of Top Gear UK and ever wondered what it would be like if you couldn't see the TV and James was the only host that week... this is it.
