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.

lots of ranting
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
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!
His energy and enthusiasm for the minutia that make up life. Mind boggling that he has the attention span to develop his ideas
Dave Gormans' appreciation of the little things always leaves me wondering if I've missed the point and always makes me smile
Even though i'm a fan, as an audio book it did feel a little ranty at times, best in small doses
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.
