Product Details

Praise

Very smart looking tome.”—Wired.com

“Geek Wisdom
 proves that insight needn’t come from dusty old tomes and the lips of long-dead philosophers. Maybe C-3P0 isn’t Socrates and The Superfriends aren’t a French Salon, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have anything to teach us.”—Suvudu.com
 
Geek Wisdom: The Sacred Teaching of Nerd Culture is not only an invaluable guide into geekdom it’s also indispensable if you have to go undercover and penetrate a secret geek society.”—Neatorama.com

“Any good story, religious or not, can be deconstructed to find an underlying message. That’s the unifying theme of Geek Wisdom, which treats pop culture as a form of secular religion, delivering insights on life from talking robots, flying dragons and everything in between.”—PopMatters

“Premise is nothing short of brilliant.”—Florida Times Union
