Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Ken Denmead's GeekDad blog on the Wire website qualifies as one of the most entertaining educational addresses on the net, which helps explain its one plus million hits per month. His debut Geek Dad, now in its seventh printing, became a word-of-mouth favorite; to which he now adds this ultimate geek activity book. The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun contains everything to keep girls, boys, and (let's admit it) dad busy and happy during their free time. Much more illuminating than boob tube watching.
