Synopsis


The Only Geek Humor Book You'll Ever Need

Your first love was a Commodore 64. You are fluent in Elvish. Your perfect weekend involves World of Warcraft, Half-Life, and multiple viewings of Office Space. You've already booked your trip to next year's Comic-Con. You are a geek, and this is the book for you.

Part reference, part satire, this hilarious guide from the genius behind BBspot.com simultaneously pokes fun at and celebrates every subject close to a geek's heart--from The Matrix to MacGyver, from Linux to Stan Lee. Covering the eight pillars of geek knowledge--science, literature, hardware, software, gaming, the Internet, TV, and movies--The BBook of Geek offers a Vulcan salute to geeks everywhere.
