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's 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.

Listener Opinions

    " Loved it, and was very glad to learn that the types of activities my mother refers to as 'procrastinating' can sometimes turn into published books and world-wide tours. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Ward | 2/15/2014

    " Absolutely FANTASTIC! I watched the DVD before reading the book and I was still gripped to it. Everyone needs to experience this! I would recommend watching it before reading it just to get a clear idea of what it's all about before you read the extra details added to the book. It's such a shame not enough people have seen this! MUST MUST MUST WATCH/READ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lexi | 2/9/2014

    " This book definitely had its moments, but unfortunately Dave Gorman was not as successful a Danny Wallace substitute as I had hoped when I got the book. The silliness was there (including some laugh out loud moments), but the substance behind it was missing. In this case, Dave Gorman went to crazy lengths to win a bet, but ultimately came away from it the same person he was when he started. Still an enjoyable book, but it suffered by comparison with Join Me, Yes Man, and Friends Like These. "

    " This book started out with an interesting premise/game, but halway through the story really went downhill and lost credibility entirely. (It's supposed to be a true story...) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 1/26/2014

    " A great 'holiday' read. Gorman takes you on a bizarre and fascinating journey around the world thanks to a strange bet, Google and bizarre quirks of fate. (The DVD of this is also really entertaining). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 1/21/2014

    " Not as good as "Are You Dave Gorman?" but still a funny read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tuck | 1/20/2014

    " i read the whole thing. but why? I don't think people do googlewhack anymore. now they have fb? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr. Carney | 1/17/2014

    " Very funny and readable. You really want him to succeed on his quest! Recommended! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Buckler | 1/4/2014

    " I learned that the simplest task can lead to the most complicated adventures. I also learned that Kate and I make fools of ourselves when we meet authors we like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Millin | 12/28/2013

    " He is someone who goes with the flow and takes up challenges, he is very easy to lead, but enjoys life to the full. Only DG could go around the world finding people who create unique search engine hits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter Hall | 12/17/2013

    " A bit of a caper. Entertaining "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/4/2013

    " An hilarious romp! Thanks Ant for the recommendation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie | 10/14/2013

    " one to make the tears of laughter run down your face. Great for a long tube journey. "

    " Yet another comedian gets paid to write a stupid book about a stupid subject. I found most of the text filler complaining how he wasn't going to do the task or how hard it was going to be. Publishers really need to fund something a bit more worthwhile than this rubbish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 karen | 1/17/2013

    " This was another funny romp from Dave Gorman, in the vein of "Are You Dave Gorman?" and Danny Wallace's "Join Me". Now I just need to read "Yes Man" by Danny Wallace and I've read them all. Such fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shahrun | 12/22/2012

    " My neighbour loaned me his copy of this book as he thought I would enjoy it. He was right. I really enjoyed the authors style of writing. It is very easy to get into. I loved reading about his random journey. I will definatly read more by Dave Gorman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua Woodbury | 11/2/2012

    " Not filled to the brim with substance, but it was an enjoyable tale about procrastination, obsessive/compulsive behavior, and the things that really matter in life; finding a random pairing of words found on exatly one website in the entire world "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clare | 11/1/2012

    " One of those books that actually had me laughing out loud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 8/28/2012

    " As far as books by comedians go, and this is the only one I've read, this is a great book. It's hilarious but also very observant of life in these united states from the perspective of a Brit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 9/30/2011

    " Dave Gorman is supposed to be writing a novel but ends up doing stupid boy stuff instead. Very very funny. "
