Sue Baker's view...

I wish Dave Gorman every success in the promotion of his book, Too Much Information that questions media bombardment, public service announcements and inane TV among other modern day intrusions. Just one less vacuous train announcement, one less brain-dead advertisement or twitter trend and it will be worth it!

Synopsis

Too Much Information Or: Can Everyone Just Shut Up for a Moment, Some of Us are Trying to Think by Dave Gorman

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?
