Description

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.

Familiar Territory

Most of this book is largely a rehash of Gorman's show Modern Life is Goodish. Which isn't inherently bad as there is some expansion on the bits, but often times it is a word-for-word repackaging of the show content. Still worth a listen if you are a Gorman fan.

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.
