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

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!

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.

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

What a wonderful roller coaster of a book. You never know where the next chapter will take you. Perdantic at times but always amusing. Chapter 16 was an unlikey but entertaining move into badger-based glove puppetry. It would not be a bodge to buy this book.

I haven't been able to finish this book, which is strange given that I have liked Dave Gormans other books greatly. Yet this one just seemed to fall into the trap that its own title seems to be complaining about. Dave talks in his well known style, about the amount of useless information that is available everywhere, especially on the internet, but he just seems to repeat it all, whilst asking lots of questions of why it is need or there in the first place. I actually grew very tired of this type of humerus questioning and ended up counting the amount of question marks on each page, why do it? whats its purpose? where is his own conclusions? where is his own take on it? Hopefully you can see my ironic reasoning here.
