    Only for TOP GEAR fans, no one else would understand the book. Loaded with photographs the book reviews 29 of stunts, challenges and specials over a number of years of the shows newer incarnation. The title is misleading in this regard -- it's not all about creations and, as a fan, none of them are rubbish! As a fan of the show my issues with this small book are few, but I do have some. There are not enough events covered AND not enough writing about the events as well. As an example, SNOWBINE, the conversion of the harvester into a snow clearing vehicle -- barely covers the challenge, leaving out events such as -- setting a pedestrian afire (Had to be stunt, right?) OR James May damaging the car buried in a pile of snow (Real mistake or a stunt?). This is my problem with this fun, lithe, book, not enough depth. It left me wanting more.
