An amusing, giggle worthy, brain stopping, fact knowing or learning romp. I had so much fun, even if it is a glorified list of note worthy things. (Most of which I was very much already aware of, but even so!) ( )

A fun book filled with facts and puzzles appealing to geek culture, in all of its many aspects. Really nothing amazing here as it is one of those fun, light reads you would expect from what is essentially a book of trivia. Still, Garth Sundem knows his audience and those who pick up the text should enjoy it. ( )

Gift from my sister for Christmas. Full of fun facts, puzzles, and puns, it makes a suitable diversion for a boring afternoon. ( )

Funny AND educational.

I love this kind of book. One of the best of this genre I've read, I think.

Definitely have Wikipedia nearby for full enjoyment. Sometimes, you just gotta look it up for more info!

Only 4.5 stars instead of 5 because 1) it's lacking an index and 2) there are too many parts where it's obvious the author assumes only MALES are reading the book. Obviously, not true. ( )

Sorry, beautiful people. These days, from government to business to technology to Hollywood, geeks rule the world.

Finally, here’s the book no self-respecting geek can live without–a guide jam-packed with 314.1516 short entries both useful and fun. Science, pop-culture trivia, paper airplanes, and pure geekish nostalgia coexist as happily in these pages as they do in their natural habitat of the geek brain.

In short, dear geek, here you’ll find everything you need to achieve nirvana. And here, for you pathetic nongeeks, is the last chance to save yourselves: Love this book, live this book, and you too can join us in the experience of total world domination.
