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.

Made me laugh, very entertaining.

What did you like most about Too Much Information?

Dave calls out the bs that has crept into modern life. Not in a snarky way but through real research and analysis. Then articulating his findings with real humor.


What did you like best about this story?

He gives a voice to things that you feel aren't quite right or manipulative but haven't had to time to work out why. After listening to this I immediately noticed a revlon advert "79% of 173 women agree".

You intuitively know this is strange and Dave tells you why.


What about Dave Gorman’s performance did you like?

He's a seasoned comedian and that comes through in his performance.


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

Looked like an mad man with my headphones in, laughing on the tube to this book.
