Dawn Of The Dumb: Dispatches From The Idiotic Frontline & Screen Burn (books) £2.99 Each. Available instore & online (free delivery online too!)

*Dawn Of The Dumb: Dispatches From The Idiotic Frontline*
Polite, pensive, mature, reserved ... Charlie Brooker is none of these things and less. Rude, unhinged, outrageous, and above all funny, "Dawn of the Dumb" is essential reading for anyone with a brain and a spinal cord. And hands for turning the pages. Picking up where his hilarious "Screen Burn" left off, "Dawn of the Dumb" collects the best of Charlie Brooker's recent TV writing, together with uproarious spleen-venting diatribes on a range of non-televisual subjects - tackling everything from David Cameron to human hair.

*Screen Burn*
Finally, a comprehensive collection of Charlie Brooker's hilarious Guardian Guide television column "Screen Burn". Possibly the angriest man in the world, Brooker (creator of the cult website TVGoHome) rips into his targets with merciless glee and an impossibly deft and scatalogical turn of phrase. Not a book that you can reliably read in public without letting out convulsive gulps of laughter, Charlie systematically demolishes Casualty, Simon Cowell, the Queen's speech, Jamie Oliver, Gillian McKeith, and pretty much anyone else who comes into range. If you're worried about the amount of rubbish on your TV these days then have no fear, Charlie Brooker is in your corner, and he's not going down without a fight!

This man is very funny. Catch his newswipe on BBC4
I bought my brother those 2 books for Christmas (think I paid £4 each on Play). Charlie Brooker is awesome.
Talented writer - I've thought that since I used to read PC Zone. And if I recall correctly, a strong Doom & Quake player.

True, newswipe and screenwipe are hilarious, shame the Channel 4 programme he did was a bit below par.
Screen Burn same price on
Thanks, been looking for an offer on his books. Amazon is £5 each. H&R

Yes but you can get both of these books at HMV for what are charging for 'Dawn of the Dumb' alone. :thumbsup:

Ordered these earlier on Amazon and just seen this. They've already been sent aswell :x
Bought both books recently from HMV (think it was posted before) and both are great. You might want to read them in short doses to appreciate best, as they are mostly a collection of news column reviews and observations arranged chronologically. I read both back to back while laid up at home with bronchitis.

Love 'NewsWipe', 'ScreenWipe', the one off 'GamesWipe' and 'You have been watching' too - long may they continue.

Funny and intelligent bloke all round, his NewsWipe in particular is really cutting.

Voted hot!
