A girls guide to dating a geek book
it got quite annoying when this happened more than 5 times.If they’re such glaring mistakes that are that obvious when someone is reading the book for the first time… This book was bunches of fun and a great light pick-me-up in between my fiction reads. And with its realism, the points it makes are applicable.And reading it was an absolutely wonderful experience. This is just a great book for anyone on the geeky side of the spectrum looking to be entertained. First off, the structure and design of this book is absolutely fabulous.The layout is reminiscent of a textbook, but it has cute little 8-bit drawings as illustrations and anecdotal sections that really bring Smiths “theories” home.
But in chapters like “Selecting Your Character”, where it dives into the different kinds of geeks (I’m a TV & Film Geek, Internet Geek, Social Media Geek, and Book Geek) and what skills they possess (for me that’s the wide-open mind, empathic sensor, and minutia recall), it shows you how you also possess desirable qualities.I guess the biggest weakness of The Geek’s Guide to Dating is that it really could have used another editing round.There were quite a few glaring grammatical errors – sentences where words were just plain missing as a result of revising and rewriting…Now, I may not have known all of the references (because the geeksphere is so huge) but there were more than enough points where I was seriously giggling.If you’re geeky and you speak this language, you will seriously appreciate this book. I would advise you to just read a short excerpt on Amazon or something to check it out – and if you start chuckling, buy the book, because you will not regret it.
