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?
Bestselling author Dave Gorman thinks we're suffering from information overload. How much do we really pay attention to? Dave intends to find out.
"In the study of modern miscellany Dave Gorman is the equivalent of a professor emeritus" Independent "Dave Gorman is funny and brilliant in equal measure" The Times
