Lots of people have been reading Geek Wisdom, and saying all sorts of nice things. It’s particularly satisfying to hear readers appreciating some of the specific aspects that were most important to me and to my collaborators in crafting the book. Sarah Farrukh’s review does just that, and it left me with a definite case of the warm and fuzzies:
This book made me realize that true geekdom has to do with being in awe of the universe and intellectual world we live in. This was the connection to the sacred that was made in the introduction of the book. There is a humility that comes out of that awe… Above all, however, this book celebrates being different, being original, having esoteric passions and sensibilities, and being the kid who stayed holed up in her room reading on weekend nights while the other kids from high school shopped, gossiped, and went to parties. To such a kid, this book is home.
