Geek Wisdom: The Sacred Teachings of Nerd CultureGeek Wisdom: The Sacred Teachings of Nerd Culture by Stephen H. Segal
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

“Geek-hood,” I realize, is all relative. I’d like to think that I have the street cred to call myself a geek or nerd. Graduate degrees in science. Book-lover. Technophile. Fantasy author. But as I read through the snippets of “wisdom” in this book, I kept thinking perhaps my grown daughter is more of a geek than I am. I got most of the pop culture references, but I think she might’ve gotten more of them. And (a look of embarrassment crosses his face) I am Doctor-Who-illiterate (gasp!).

The “sacred teachings” were at times mildly humorous, or cute. But surely the editors could’ve found some profound gems of wisdom to throw in! Perhaps I expected too much. I just didn’t get much out of this.

And there was no mention of “Nerds,” the candy. Too bad.
