It will come as no surprise to anyone that Jeremy Clarkson loves machines. But its not just any old bucket of bolts, cogs and bearings that rings his bell. In fact, hes scoured the length and breadth of the land, plunged into oceans and taken to the skies in search of machines with that elusive certain something.
And along the way hes discovered:
* The safest place to be in the event of nuclear war
* Who would win if Superman, James Bond and The Terminator had a fight
The stupidest person hes ever met
* What an old Cornish institution called Arthur has to do with 0898 chat lines
* And how Jean-Claude Van Damme might get eaten by a lion
In I Know You Got Soul, Jeremy Clarkson tells the stories of the geniuses, innovators and crackpots who put the ghost in the machine. From Brunels SS Great Britain to the awesome Blackbird spy-plane and from the woeful but inspiring Graf Zeppelin to Han Solos Millennium Falcon, they were built by people who love them. And we cant help but love them in return.
