The Bbook of Geek is definitely a well-rounded book, covering topics like TV, movies, the Internet, software, hardware, science, gaming, and literature. From D&D to WoW, from Gates to Jobs, from The Twilight Zone to Firefly, this book will keep you laughing and remind you of all those years of terrible technology. I am so very thankful I wasn't born until the 80's.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This book is a delightful mix of truth and fallacy, much like Briggs' website. See: "BBelievers". Each entry in this book contains a blurb of the topic, a list of "facts", and a hilariously funny picture featuring Briggs.
I was pleasantly surprised with some of the topics, like Rube Goldberg machines, manga, and Metropolis, but was also surprised at some of the things not included (like Magic the Gathering and They Might Be Giants).
All in all I thought this book was great. It's funny, it's sentimental, and hey, you just might learn something.
If you have an ounce of geek in you, and we all do, check out this book!
