I have been aware of Dave Gorman's books for a while but only recently have i decided to take the plunge and dive in to comedy genius.
This is a very funny book that follows Dave on his quest to complete a string of Google Whacks. Along the way he meets some very interesting people and at one point becomes obsessed//depressed/desperate with the whole situation.
If you want some idea of what the book is all about pop along to Youtube and search for Dave's Google whack.
The enthusiasm in his act alone, will make you buy the book....

The first DG book was excellent (and although not directly related, if you can read that first do), and this is no departure from the brilliant bizarre format "must do it for no real reason" bet-come-travelogue! Couldn't put it down, the way in which DG just disappears to meet someone he's never met before is a real eye-opener as are the "crazy" American's he frequently meets, let alone the tattoo! The writing is fast paced, irreverent, witty and at times thought provoking. A thoroughly enjoying read, and had me trying to find googlewhacks too. A must read of 2004. Excellent.

I have always found Dave Gorman's tv programmes hilarious so I wanted to read this book. I laughed so much it is a fantastically funny book. This book should come with a warning- Not to be read before going to sleep!
I always ended up reading for hours and then laughing so much I couldn't get to sleep!
If you've ever used the web search engine Google (even if you haven't)- read this book!

Dave Gorman is a refreshingly funny guy without trying too hard. Miss him at your peril. Other clichéd terms to fill this space.

Great read. Funny, just like his Googlewhack show. There seems to be just a bit moor detail.

Another great quest undertaken by Dave. An excellent story where I was keen for him to succeed.
