9780091891961: Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure

If someone called you a 'googlewhack' what would you do? Would you end up playing table tennis with a nine year old boy in Boston? Would you find yourself in Los Angeles wrangling snakes, or would you go to China to be licked by a performance artist? If your name is Dave Gorman, then all of these things could be true...Fuelled by a lust for life and a desperate desire to do anything except what he is supposed to be doing (writing that novel and growing up), Dave falls under the spell of an obscure internet word game - Googlewhacking. Addicted to the game, and gripped by obsession, Dave travels three times round the world, visiting four continents and the unlikeliest cast of real life eccentrics you'll ever meet in what becomes an epic challenge, a life-changing, globe-trotting Googlewhack adventure. A hostage to the vagaries of a search engine, Dave Gorman has become a 21st century Dice Man throwing his fortune to the fates. The only difference is that the dice Dave tolls has 3 million faces...

Review:

"....excellent stuff from a genuinely obsessive bloke and one of the best comedians on the circuit today" -- ICE Magazine

"Following his hilarious search for his far-flung namesakes, this gently but persistently funny book is another to savour" -- OK Magazine

"This chronicle of his global search is the best kind of nonsense - totally stupid, incredibly pointless and absolutely hilarious" -- Scottish Daily Record

"Very funny" -- Daily Mirror

"very funny" -- Independent on Sunday

'Fresh, funny and very entertaining' -- Daily Mail

From the Publisher:

Another hi-octane, pointless adventure from 'the Bill Bryson of stand-up'
