Word needed

At artw*nk today I was enjoying criticising the content and intended audience for Bollywood Dreams I wanted to describe it as the type of book suitable for a middle class audience who thought they know more about the topic and photography than they actually did.

Bit I didn't have the words.

There's a word for a type of person who has a trivial understanding of something but thinks they know more about that and other things. I'm sure there is. But I can't remember it. Maybe it was those poppers in 1997...

Help!
