THE GEEKS HAVE INHERITED THE EARTH.

Computer nerds are our titans of industry; comic-book superheroes are our Hollywood idols; the Internet is our night on the town. Clearly, geeks knowsomething about life in the 21st century that other folks don't--something we all can learn from. "Geek Wisdom" takes as gospel some 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes frommovies ("Where we're going, we don't need roads"), television ("Now we know--and knowing is half the battle"), literature ("All that is golddoes not glitter"), games, science, the Internet, and more. Now these beloved pearls of modern-day culture have been painstakingly interpreted by a diverse team of hardcore nerds with their imaginations turned upto 11. Yes, this collection of mini-essays is by, for, and about geeks--but it's just so surprisingly profound, the rest of us would have to be dorks not to read it. So say weall.

"From the Hardcover edition."
