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.

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

The world's superlative road trips--scenic, thrilling, and memorable--in both natural and urban settings. For anyone who has fallen under its spell, a car represents freedom and adventure. For decades, the American tradition of the road trip has been bound up with the idea of new possibilities and new horizons. This book is an indispensable guide to the most beautiful, breathtaking, extraordinary, and fun road trips the world has to offer. Complete with road trips varying in length and level of challenge, from an epic transglobal route inspired by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's Long Way Round documentary series to a two-mile blast around Monaco's F1 street circuit, there is something for any adventurer. Each entry provides information about distance, start and finish points, road surfaces, must-see stop-offs, detours, and other details to plan an unforgettable trip. Entries are organized into three categories: Scenic, Adventure, and Culture. One can marvel at the views from Cape Town's scenic Chapman's Peak Drive or central California's Pacific Coast Highway, but the thrill seeker might opt for the hair-raising ride through Montenegro's coastal mountains to reach the medieval walled town of Sveti Stefan on the Adriatic. The culture category features routes inspired by film, literature, and history: re-create Thelma and Louise's heart-pounding joyride (minus the final leap), savor Japan's "Romance Road" through unspoiled small towns, or follow Jack Kerouac's path from On the Road.

From a Smart in Russia to a Ferrari over the mountains of Ecuador, this rollicking combination of bravery, jeopardy, and yes—stupidity, will take you across polar planes in a pick-up truck; up sand dunes in a Toyota Land Cruiser, along remote and rugged coastlines, into the Australian outback; and through the gates of Dracula’s castle in a Mercedes-Benz. You'll drive in fast cars, cool cars, inappropriate cars, tiny cars, and some very expensive cars in Top Gear’s road trips of a lifetime. Twenty spectacular behind-the-wheel adventures will be irresistible to anyone who dreams of heading for the horizon with a scorch of the tires in a cloud of dust.

Es wird dir so leidtun, wenn du erkennst, was ich deinetwegen tun musste. Doch keine Sorge: Ich bereue nichts. Als die angehende Schriftstellerin Guinevere Beck die Buchhandlung betritt, in der Joe Goldberg arbeitet, ist dieser augenblicklich hingerissen von ihr. Beck ist die perfekte Frau: wunderschön, clever und so sexy. Als sie ihren Einkauf mit ihrer Kreditkarte bezahlt, macht Joe das, was jeder normale Mensch in dieser Situation tun würde: Er googelt ihren Namen. Beck hat einen öffentlichen Facebook-Account, und sie twittert ununterbrochen. Kinderleicht findet Joe heraus, dass sie an der Brown University studiert, in der Bank Street wohnt und sich an diesem Abend mit ihren Freundinnen in einer Bar treffen wird - die perfekte Gelegenheit für ihn, sie "zufällig" wiederzusehen und mit ihr ins Gespräch zu kommen! Ohne dass Beck es bemerkt, beginnt Joe, ihr Leben in seine Hand zu nehmen. Stück für Stück zerstört er ihre Welt - und treibt sie dadurch auf direktem Weg in seine offenen Arme. Bald kann Beck gar nicht anders, als sich in den seltsamen, aber irgendwie charismatischen Typen zu verlieben, der wie für sie gemacht scheint. Nicht ahnend, dass Joe systematisch alle Hindernisse aus dem Weg räumt, die sich zwischen ihre Liebe drängen könnten - und er dabei auch nicht vor Mord zurückschreckt. "Gone Girl trifft auf eine böse Version von Girls." Marie Claire "Clever und eiskalt." Elle "Hypnotisch und unheimlich ... Ich habe noch nie etwas Vergleichbares gelesen." Stephen King "Ich bin GEFESSELT, ENTSETZT, ERREGT ... Einer dieser seltenen Fälle, bei denen Plot und Prosa gleichermaßen ausgezeichnet sind." Lena Dunham "Wenn Sie nur einen einzigen Thriller in diesem Jahr lesen, sorgen Sie dafür, dass es dieser hier ist." Daily Mail
