Dec 16, Amanda rated it it was ok. My boyfriend bought this for me from ThinkGeek after many dropped hints. I honestly girld have lived without reading it. Inouye claims that she is "geekier" than other girls, but for some reason this book is A girls guide to dating a geek of grammatical errors and typos. That drives me insane. I know not everyone can spell, but for goodness sake, everyone can proofread, or get a girls guide to dating a geek else to do it for them!
Secondly, the bulk of this book is She completely debas My boyfriend bought this for me from ThinkGeek after many dropped hints. She completely debases people she considers "nerds," only slightly exulting geeks above their low station in life. She talks about how if you date a geek, and go to a geek convention, a girls guide to dating a geek should find z hot "booth babe" and commence erica from love and hip hop atlanta dating all the geeks.
And she is constantly referring to geeky guys as "ugly. There's no picture of her in her bio I wonder what SHE looks like. There are also a few chapters on how to "normalize" a geek. That seemed kind of pointless In short, this book could have been WAY better. As someone who has been dating a geek for the last five years, I have often read how-to articles and so forth online that are similar to the idea of this book -- good-naturedly teasing geeky guys and giving women tips for living with them.
Those are far more entertaining than a book that is basically one long insult. Looking at ratings on Amazon, they are extremely polarized -- half and half 1 star and 5 star ratings. I guess you either love this book, or you hate it. I am giving it two stars, because it's a great aa, just horrible execution. Dec 01, Kathy rated it it was ok. The case studies at the end of the book dating negative traits pretty funny, but the rest was a bit offensive.
It worked as a joke book, or a look into what I a girls guide to dating a geek Penny's Big Bang Theory thoughts to be like. May 05, Angela rated it really liked it Recommends giide for: I laughed out loud at so many things in this book and I find it funny that the author's friends didn't think she was the right person to write this as she was the "geekiest and least feminine girl" they knew -- I think it worked to her advantage in the field work, as she looked as if she belonged -- easier to watch the antics.
I especially enjoyed the cards at the end -- so funny. Datijg 24, Bianca rated it did not like it. Offensive and horribly wrong. Geeks and nerds doesn't have a strict correlation, rather causality. Many grammar errors even noticed by a non native speaker. Perhaps I am too much of an geek myself. I rolled my eyes over most of the graphics because they were either old jokes or not funny at all.
The curves are either too simplified or have no relevance and proposition whatsoever. Excluding the fact of m Offensive and horribly wrong. Excluding the fact of missing references. For example the color wheel paragraph Wardrobe from Newton has not the purpose of complementary colors. It was to show the blending of colors and the spectrum of a rainbow. The color theory states that artists such as Boulet or Goethe brought the conclusion from the light spectrum to the complementary colors.
So I cringed over such wrongly delivered informations. For a good book into geekdom I would recommend a rather funny one that doesn't drag everything trough the mudd and portrays geeks healthier. Sure there are the stereotypes out there but that has not to be the case for each and everyone of them. Sep 03, Amy Makler rated it liked it. This was a short but highly a girls guide to dating a geek read, containing descriptions of categories of the specific geeks that exist.
The guide also contains a questionnaire that allows your geek to determine what type of geek he may be, as well as a Valentine's card written in binary code, and several other things that only a geek could understand. Despite the humor of this guide, it was written in a very technical style which forced me to reread some paragraphs again. Fuide in all, if you're looking for a laug This was a short but highly entertaining a girls guide to dating a geek, containing descriptions of categories tl the specific geeks that exist.
