From the publisher who brought us Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and all those many spinoffs now comes Geek Wisdom: The Sacred Teachings of Nerd Culture by Stephen H. Segal
I read this straight through, meaning I didn't skip around but treated it like a normal book. Mistake. I think the reason it took me so long was that this isn't a book in chronological order where by starting o page 1 you end up on the last page with a complete history of the subject.
No chronology expected here!
Which is part of its charm. I enjoyed the book and spent an inordinate amount of time trying to guess the quote before looking at the speaker of said quote. I think I averaged 85% (there was something about flying dragons I didn't get).
If you're a geek with an affinity for science fiction, fantasy, 80s cartoons, cheesy movies, intellectual video games, and can pick out at least 5 pictures from the cover, this book is for you. If you know a geek who can do all of the above, Christmas is right around the corner!
