Richard says in his introduction that the book "is about how to travel in a way that is sensitive to the climate and nature emergencies". It is primarily focused on experiences that have a lower carbon footprint and provide a positive effect on the conservation of biodiversity. It is also focused on individual actions that can make significant difference to the impact of how we travel. a b "Mopar Muscle for Top Gear's Hammond – DRC Review News Article".

That is how things are these days. The viewer builds up some sort of relationship with the person on the small(ish) screen. So Richard's jet car accident was a big deal. The newspapers and the TV and radio news not only reported his crash, but also to some extent his recovery. This book is Richards record, for public consumption, of that whole process. The recovery process is more prolonged, this part takes about half the book. There are some lovely scenes that portray the madness of it all, they should be funny, but because we have got to know Richard somehow, they are not. The escape from the hospital, the military style operation to move the family to somewhere quiet so that the recovery can continue should be a point of high humour - but we care, so it isn't. Mindy's passages about the family, and particularly the children make for difficult reading. They are well written, but hard to read, hard to get through, especially if you have children of your own, I suspect.Richard Hammond and the Holy Grail".
