Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TUNE IN. TURN ON. GEEK OUT.

Sorry, beautiful people. These days, from government to business to technology to Hollywood, geeks rule the world.

Finally, heres the book no self-respecting geek can live without-a guide jam-packed with 314.1516 short entries both useful and fun. Science, pop-culture trivia, paper airplanes, and pure geekish nostalgia coexist as happily in these pages as they do in their natural habitat of the geek brain.

In short, dear geek, here youll find everything you need to achieve nirvana. And here, for you pathetic nongeeks, is the last chance to save yourselves: Love this book, live this book, and you too can join us in the experience of total world domination.
