Inhaltsangabe: Beginning with close to 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes from movies, television, comic....
""Geek Wisdom" proves that insight needn't come from dusty old tomes and the lips of long-dead philosophers. Maybe C-3P0 isn't Socrates and The Superfriends aren't a French S"alon", but that doesn't mean they don't have anything to teach us."--"Suvudu.com"
""Geek Wisdom: The Sacred Teaching of Nerd Culture" is not only an invaluable guide into geekdom it's also indispensable if you have to go undercover and penetrate a secret geek society."--"Neatorama.com
"Any good story, religious or not, can be deconstructed to find an underlying message. That's the unifying theme of "Geek Wisdom", which treats pop culture as a form of secular religion, delivering insights on life from talking robots, flying dragons and everything in between." --"PopMatters"
...what the editors have done is nothing short of wondrful...' --Starburst maagzine, Nov, 2011
have to talk a little about the design of this book! It s freaking awesome! The cover is black with yellow accents, look a little closer and we get these shiny outlines of tetris blocks, Slimer from the Ghostbusters, Homer Simpson and many more cool geeky icons. Take off the dust jacket and yowzers, it gets even better! A bright yellow hardcover with GEEK slapped across the front, this is my kinda book! I love the way Quirk design their books, and if you re anything like me, who likes to display books, this one can t be missed! What is Geek Wisdom? It s 223 pages full of awesome, really! If you re a little nerdy, or have an interest in pop culture, film, games or quotes then this book is for you! Maybe you have a friend with a birthday coming up, not sure what to get them, they ll love this! This would also make a cool stocking filler or an excellent coffee table book. Geek Wisdom is a book that wants to be shared on a movie night with friends or laugh with it over a few beers. I absolutely loved this book, and so did everyone who I showed it to, quite a few of those people will be finding this in their Christmas stocking this year. The book is split into sections, for example : wisdom about humankind. Under each section you ll find a quote, followed by a passage of how it can be translated into every day life and what that quote means on a larger scale, sometimes very funny, other times more profound. You re a vampire. Oh, I m sorry. Was that an offensive term? Should I say undead American? Like Buffy, we ve all caught ourselves on occasion saying snide, harmful things to the ones we love~ mainly even mocking or spurning something that matters profoundly to them. Yet beneath that moment of nastiness, Buffy can t forget that she found it in her heart to recognize and love Angel s damaged humanity in the first place. There s a lesson here for all of us: If you re going to breach the line of decorum do it with someone you can trust to accept your apology later. There are lots of little illustrations that add personality to this little book. I loved the quotes that were featured, a lot of them took me back to the time where I first heard it. It bought back memories of my teenage years, and reminded me of films that I want to watch or want to watch again. I truly loved this book, and I ll be dipping in and out of it again and again, I highly recommend! --bigbookslittlebooks, May, 2013
