Publisher's Summary

Nowadays, the world is full of people trying to tell us things. So much so that we have taught our brains not to pay much attention. After all, click the mouse, tap the screen, flick the channel and it’s on to the next thing. But Dave Gorman thinks it’s time to have a closer look, to find out how much nonsense we tacitly accept.
Suspicious adverts, baffling newspaper headlines, fake twitter, endless cat videos, insane TV shows where the presenters ask the same questions over and over.…
Can we even hear ourselves think over the rising din? Or is there just too much information?
Read by Dave Gorman himself.

Another fantastic Dave Gorman book

Would you listen to Too Much Information again? Why?

I've already listened to it twice! And it's the sort of thing you could dip into, even selecting a chapter at random, for a bit of fun.

Have you listened to any of Dave Gorman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I got "Dave Gorman Verses the World". This one is a little angrier and less sentimental, but always great to hear Dave's delivery of his own material.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Much genuine laughing out loud.

Any additional comments?

A really fun book. More a set of observations than an on-going story, and some re-use from the "Modern Life is Goodish" TV show, but such an enjoyable listen.

lots of ranting

What made the experience of listening to Too Much Information the most enjoyable?

Thankfully Dave Gorman reads his own book. His delivery and personal approach to his quirky view of life made this a gem for gorman fans

What was one of the most memorable moments of Too Much Information?

His usual eye for detail and the game of playing who puts the next customer bar on the conveyor belt...changed my life all be it in a very small way!

What about Dave Gorman’s performance did you like?

His energy and enthusiasm for the minutia that make up life. Mind boggling that he has the attention span to develop his ideas

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Dave Gormans' appreciation of the little things always leaves me wondering if I've missed the point and always makes me smile

Any additional comments?

Even though i'm a fan, as an audio book it did feel a little ranty at times, best in small doses

Mono-themed drudgery

What disappointed you about Too Much Information?

Given Gormans' evident eagle-eyed monitoring of all things written, I worry about criticising his work, but here goes. The book left me feeling that a good writer had spent too much time on the internet compiling figures and tracing less desirable elements occupying that space. There are some engaging moments, but by the end, these get lost in the one track monotony of the book and perhaps the suspicion that the Gorman doth complain too much in places. Perhaps it was my mistargeted expectations but I was left cold. Not wrong with her performance though.
