Danny Wallace makes a bet with his friend Dave Gorman that he will not be able to find at least 50 other "Dave Gorman"s (or Gormen). [return][return]This book (and the subsequent TV program presented by Gorman) tells of how and where Dave finds the other Daves, and some of the more "unique" Daves that he comes across.[return][return]This is an easy and humerous book to read, giving a brief look into other people's lives united by one specific trate

I’ve been a fan of Dave Gorman for a long time – his tv shows and stage shows (I’m lucky enough to have been him live) are always witty and entertaining, and his books are always a good source of amusement. In this book, he basically travels around England playing games with strangers. He plays traditional games such as Cluedo, Ping Pong, Darts and Poker, and some other games which were – to me at least – unknown, such as Khett, Kubb, Smite and erm…Rod Hull’s Emu Game (I know who Rod Hull and Emu are obviously. I did not know that there was such a game. And neither did Dave!)

Gorman is an affable and engaging narrator and while the book is not constantly hilarious, it is amusing and made me laugh out loud on a number of occasions. There is at least one episode which took both myself and Dave Gorman himself by complete surprise, and when you’ve finished the book I am sure you will know which one I mean.

Overall, a lovely read which I would definitely recommend. Also, I now would love to find a local Smite team to join!
