Customer Review

on 25 June 2011
I'm a bit of a Dave Gorman fan. Not the creepy, stalky kind, but I narrowly missed his 'Are You Dave Gorman?' gig, caught and thoroughly enjoyed his 'Googlewhack' gig, read and liked both his earlier books, and am always happy to see him pop up on TV. So I was pleased when my partner bought this book to read on a recent holiday, and have just read it myself.

The thing is, though, I don't think it matters if you've never heard of Dave Gorman, because this is a really good book. It's well-written, funny, engaging and very readable. Dave Gorman manages to reflect on subjects including friendship, relationships, tribalism, gender and risk without ever getting heavy or didactic. The 'voice' of the book is consistent and assured, and the way Dave Gorman writes the surprising end section is beautifully judged. If you enjoy quirky, humorous memoir or travelogue, I'd recommend this book highly.
