Summary

We live in the era of the geek. Computer nerds are our titans of industry; comic-book heroes are our Hollywood idols; the Internet is our night on the town. Clearly, the geeks know something that other folks don#x19;t-something we could all do well to learn from. So here it is: Geek Wisdom. Painstakingly gathered and interpreted by a diverse team of hardcore nerds who#x19;ve spent years poring over the most beloved texts of the modern-day imagination. Beginning with some 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes from movies (#x1C;Do, or do not-there is no #x18;try#x19;#x1D;), television (#x1C;The truth is out there#x1D;), comics (#x1C;With great power comes great responsibility#x1D;), science, the Internet, and more, Geek Wisdom offers illuminating insights into the eternal truths to be found therein. Yes, this collection of mini-essays is by, for, and about geeks-but it#x19;s just so surprisingly profound, the rest of us would have to be dorks not to read it.
