From the Publisher
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 know something 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 from movies ("Where we're going, we don't need
roads"), television ("Now we know-and knowing is half the battle"),
literature ("All that is gold does 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 up to 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 we all.
