Inspired by the presenters’ travels in the course of making the programme, the book includes behind-the-scenes photos, not-entirely-serious guides to the countries visited during the show, and tongue-in-cheek hints for travellers such as how to pack for varied climates and how to make yourself understood in different parts of the world.
For petrolheads, the book boasts plenty of car-based features including a look at the world’s coolest police cars, a look a different nations’ attempts to create a true car of the people, and a run-down of different motoring facts from around the world.
THE GRAND TOUR GUIDE TO THE WORLD is a look at the people, places and cars of the planet, as seen through the witty, silly, often obtuse eyes of three middle-aged men who have been there and done that, and then had to go back later to apologise for all the damage.
