Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Dude, I'm totally into the WoW MMORPG. My avatar's at sixtieth level. But my parents are such twelve o'clock flashers they're always on my case about it.

Whether they're fifteen or fifty, into science fiction, movies, or D&D, geeks have their own language, full of strange and mysterious words, phrases, and acronyms. But now there's an easy way to understand them.

With this book, the uninitiated can dork out with the best of 'em. Featuring more than 1,000 words and their definitions, along with interesting factoids and quizzes to help test your GQ (Geek Quotient), you can get schooled in geek lingo from all genres--comic books . . . Klingons . . . supercomputers . . . Star Wars, and more

So when the conversation turns to fizzbin or midochlorians, no one has to feel confused. With the aid of this practical and thoroughly entertaining guide, anyone can learn to speak geek.

Synopsis:

""The last WoW module was clunky and a bit slow on my rig but it had a great toolset for building adventures for my avatar. Now I'm at sixtieth level! Awesome!""

Whether it's about science fiction, Star Trek, sports, comics, or computers, geekspeak is full of mysterious words and phrases. But now there's an easy way to understand what it's all about.

  • LARP
  • Red Shirt
  • Wilhelm Scream
  • Xenomorph
  • Munchkin*

So don't worry if you don't know what a midochlorian is or what to do with a proton pack. With this book, you'll never be confused again.

*Which doesn't mean what you think it means, unless you're a fan of roleplaying games.
