    1. Join us or die, you will.Begun, the Geek Wars have m m _ d _ bIf you don t recognize these emoticons, this book is for you.


    2. It s really helped me in my journey to become Supreme Leader Of The Universe Now rise my minions,rise MWAHAHAHAHAAHAAHaha cough cough But seriously, it s awesome.



    3. After realizing this title had been on my wish list for about two years, I gave up and requested it as an inter library loan I waited a few weeks for delivery, and voila Geekdom at my fingertips Joy and much singing in the land until I realize this is not exactly what I thought it was.For some weird reason, I was under the obviously mistaken impression that it was of a typical non fiction book Or perhaps I thought it was a novel, I don t know In any case, it was not what I thought it would be, [...]


    4. Look, if you re actually a geek, then right around time the author starts discussing how Gimli both accompanied Frodo to Mordor and went with Bilbo to Erebor for those of you who are uninitiated, this is not the case you ll want to throw the book across the room If you re like me and you read this book while dropping the kids off at the pool in your bathroom where the wall is 3 feet in front of your face then the book won t make it very far.Come to think of it, that s actually a pretty good alle [...]


    5. Hard to classify this book but it s a fun collection of geekish trivia and short and sweet info nuggets If nothing else, I m beholden to this book for reminding me how to use that abacus that s collected dust on my desk for decades ever since I forgot how to use it Strange, given that it s the only calculator I ve ever owned other than ones that come pre bundled with computer operating systems I also know how to tap maple trees and make syrup There Haven t I sold you on reading this book already [...]


    6. We will rule the world someday, so everyone might as well begin to accept it now Hilarious how to guide and reference book for all sorts of esoteric and fun things From 5 Cool Constants from the World of Physics such as g to How to Brew Your Own Beer and How to Build a Laser, this book has tons of interesting tidbits to explore I ll definitely be keeping this close at hand as the Geek Revolution begins.


    7. made me laugh out loud so many times its like a hilarious, condensed dictionary of thing that really are important in life like star trek che guevera quotes, impossible math problems, and how to brew your own beer ha ha ha



    8. i loved this book and liked knowing all the random information that came with it And i never got bored especially since there was so many brain teasers and puzzles.


    9. An oddball collection of how tos, what ifs, and wonderfully obscure trivia written in a fun and intelligent way Enjoyed.



    10. Gods be goodis was simply dreadful I had such high hopes for this book which was recommended to me by someone who described it as the Schott s Original Miscellany for Geeks and Nerds respectively But honestly, to me this was nothing but a bunch of utter and often incorrect or misunderstood shit First of all, I m not sure if the author really is the giant arrogant asshole he comes across as or if there is a problem withI don t knowhaving zero humor at all being socially inept not knowing how to w [...]


    11. Yes, I consider myself a geek But despite what the author claims, this book seems to be meant for geeks and non geeks alike For non geeks, topics such as nuclear energy, thermodynamics, and the subtleties of the Klingon language are explained in easy to understand terms that even the non geek brain can grasp For geeks, there are ample opportunities to indulge in our various geeky obsessionsr me, the sections on J.R.R Tolkein were particularly satisfying This book gives geeks a reason to be proud [...]


    12. An awesome book.Perfect for any true geek.It s sorted out into small categories, so you can easily find whatever information you need The notes in the end clarify any issues you may have had, and the last few pages are reserved for notes.All of the thought puzzles in it are fun to solve.It makes a perfect guide I ve used mine until the cover fell off and the pages wore out It s great for travelling, both for usefulness and just for fun.My only complaints view spoiler NASA s Scientific Method is [...]


    13. I found this book in comic book store in Chapel Hill while killing some time one afternoon It is a humor book by Garth Sundem The Tagline is be afraid, beautiful peopleThere are exactly 314.15 entries in this geek manifesto that is a homeage to all things geek from The quotable Yoda to Things that will make your brain hurt this book had me interested all the way through.The writing style is sarcastic and dripping with satire If you are interested in joining the geek army for the global takeover [...]


    14. Well, I thought I was lord of the geeks apparently not While I knew most of the stuff in the book, some was new to me I didn t know Fabio had released an Album OMG The real shocker was the stuff I knew but didn t really care about Klingon is cute, but I don t understand peoples obsession with a Science Fictional Language same as I don t understand Elvish speakers To deal with that I am about to read covers invented languages This book really isn t aimed at geeks, for those who know a geek and w [...]


    15. This isn t exactly a book you read from cover to cover It contains a variety information that is randomly dispersed throughout It s style is not unlike one of the many Uncle John Bathroom Readers, but unlike those books, Geeks Guide is concise and to the point with its information However, there isn t much of a narrative in the way the info is presented in the Geeks Guide I did find a lot of tidbits that made me think, HmmmI never knew that Things such as how to make your own beer, write your na [...]


    16. This book is essentially bathroom reading 314 different snippets of trivia and thought that should interest the average geek.I m a little leery of some of the facts though since some content was off base no Gimli was not one of Bilbo s companions in The Hobbit, that was his father, Gloin.Interesting when you don t have much else at hand, but not much good for reference no organization what so ever and not really compelling tom read through in order.


    17. A Era da Informa o dominada pelos nerds, ent o previs vel que surjam livros como este O autor se prop e a listar fatos variados, alguns interessantes e outros est pidos, mas todos aparentemente relacionados com nerdice.A edi o nacional bonita e o papel bom, mas a revis o da tradu o falha, de forma que h piadas mal traduzidas, e muitas outras falhas.Ainda assim, a leitura n o foi prejudicada e Sundem consegue apresentar alguns fatos realmente divertidos N o passa de uma cole o de curiosidades, e [...]


    18. It s an alright book if, as the title suggests, you re a complete TRIVIA geek.I emphasize TRIVIA because that s really all you re getting here As a Web Developer by trade, I sort of took geek to mean television, computers, science fiction etc d just reading the back page alone before purchase I saw they mentioned Search Engine Optimization and agreed, I am the geek they re talking about here Upon finishing, I realized I wasn t exactly that geek I found a majority of the trivia rather boring.This [...]


    19. A fun read, filled with interesting information for a person in high school Not any older than that The title has so much potential for it, and to be honest it s the reason why I bought the whole thing, but it let me down The style of writing is catchy, but not enough, I have to admit I skipped some chapters because they were slightly boring and not that interesting I would have hoped to see something sarcastic and geeky enough to grab my attention, but it failed me Yet the three stars are well [...]


    20. I should have leafed through this before purchasing at Urban Outfitters, so the rating is because of the gap between my expectations based on the title and what I got I was hoping for a witty approach to a step by step guide to how one might hypothetically take over the worldmething akin to the Evil Overlord list and Step 31 How to Create an Evil Robot Army Instead it was of a weak imitation of Uncle John s Bathroom Readerwith a slight nerdy edge.


    21. Funny AND educational return return I love this kind of book One of the best of this genre I ve read, I think return return Definitely have nearby for full enjoyment Sometimes, you just gotta look it up for info return return Only 4.5 stars instead of 5 because 1 it s lacking an index and 2 there are too many parts where it s obvious the author assumes only MALES are reading the book Obviously, not true.


    22. This book was really not what I was expecting Obviously I was wrong, but I was under the impression that this was going to be a typical non fiction, novel like guide book, not this chaotic jumble of random facts Also, any true geek would have started flipping shit when Sundem began talking about Lord of the Rings and said that Gimli actually accompanied Frodo all the way to Mordor and also went with Bilbo to Erebor Errr, no I was hoping for and was sorely disappointed.


    23. Don t get me wrong I love geeks and trivia filled books My problem was that I decided to read this like a book If I had just grabbed some friends and skimmed through picking and choosing as I went it would have been both informative and hilarious Instead, it came off as trying too hard to be funny and trying too hard to be a stereotypical geek I am a geek, but in the way this book came across.Crying shame really.


    24. This book was a fun read I realized that I m not as much of a geek as I thought I was or maybe I m just not a computer geek and just some other kind of geek This is a collection of short trivial bits of information Some of it was dumb, some was challenging, and some actually taught me a few things like how to read an abacus The author also has a sense of humor and embraces his geekiness which just made it fun to read.


    25. Something I grabbed from Borders with a coupon love those coupons when the Downtown s graphic novel selection and mess failed me.It was kind of cute, and had a lot of little interesting facts and figures in it, though it wasn t quite as good as the Schott s Miscellanies The first half seemed geeky than the second.


    26. A book for any geek who knows way too much random trivia or wants to know random trivia I will admit though, this book did make me feel a bit less geeky because there was so much in this book that I didn t know until I encountered the write your name in Elvish section which I already know how to do and also know some advanced lesser used characters.


    27. If you ever find yourself in need of further paper, rock, scissors strategy, or curious about which secret combination s to join, or how to have sex in Second Life, then this is THE book for you It s like a combination of Schott s Miscellany and one of those hardware store Pocket Refs for WoW fans Packed with info and ready to get your geek on.
