An unlikely move into badger based glove puppetry - another great read by Dave Gorman. Couldn't put it down. I'm sure 47% of 34 people will agree.

Dave Gorman, despite his success in comedy, according to a British poll, is one of those few men, after Mother Teresa (and Richard Branson), who could be eligible to write the Ten Commandments and yet here he turns his attention to Badger based glove puppetry.

I am huge fan of Dave but I'm not sure that this foray into Badger based puppetry is a wise or foolish move. What about other woodland based animal puppets? It would only take the addition of a mole, water rat and toad hand puppets and Dave could reenact Wind in the Willows, what a missed opportunity.

Format: Paperback
Gorman's take on badger-based glove-puppetry represents an interesting departure...

Seriously, though, I bought this book after thoroughly enjoying DG's latest TV show 'Modern Life is Goodish' and was intrigued to find that some of the pieces he's done for this show are presented in the written form within the pages of this book. However, the mock outrage that he does well on TV (or on stage, for that matter) doesn't work as well when written down, so what we have here is, to be honest, a series of exasperated rants about modern life which at times overdoes it on the pedantry. Some parts of this I liked, and even found myself nodding along to, others less so. At no point did I laugh out loud, though, which was a shame; as a result, I found myself slightly disappointed.

I was looking for a story of one man and his badger glove puppet... With this book I got that and a whole lot more.

I’ve been a big fan of Dave Gorman for a very long time now – bought all his other books, watched all of his TV shows and DVDs, and seen three of his stage shows. I suppose that it’s inevitable that sooner or later I was going to be a little bit disappointed with one of his offerings, and I’m afraid ‘Too Much Information’ is it. Basically: -
• Although quite a bit of the book is material is new – or new to me anyway – quite a bit of it isn’t. For example – the 10:08 rule material is thought provoking and funny, but I first heard it in The Powerpoint Presentation stage show a couple of years ago, and then again in the first series of Modern Life is Goodish. I’m sorry, Dave, but maybe it’s time to put that stuff out to grass.
• I agree with other people who have suggested that there isn’t a great deal of ‘light and shade’ in this book either – Dave is never less than thought provoking and funny, but at times the pedantry in some of the sections here just didn’t quite ring true with me.
• The great difference between this and his other previous books – Are You Dave Gorman? – The Googlewhack Adventure – America Unchained and Dave Gorman vs. The Rest Of The World – is that each of these has a narrative, which manages to be both entertaining, and something that takes the reader on a journey with Dave. This doesn’t.
So while I don’t blame Dave for one minute for trying something different, for me in terms of style this is really just a collection of thought pieces, and doesn’t satisfy as a whole in the way that the rest of his books do.

Excellent read (the font and spacing is spot on for those of us with slightly older eyes) step away from the internet for a day and learn a bit about how it's watching you.
Glad to see he also goes deeper into the world of badger glove puppetry

Another fantastic book from Dave Gorman. Very funny at times, but also makes you think about the way the modern world works (or doesn't!). Not sure what I make of his work in badger-based glove puppetry though - not the most obvious career move!
