So you’re a geek, and proud of it. You know the difference between electrons, protons, and neutrons. You’ve got a photo of Bill Gates on your bedroom wall, The Big Bang Theory is your favourite show, and you wear a Darth Vader costume around the house (which you don’t leave that often because you’re playing World of Warcraft!) For a long time geeks were maligned, shunned to the shadowy depths of libraries and LAN parties. Not anymore. Geeks are ruling the world – from pop-culture to start-ups – modern society is seeing nerds as heroes.

Alex Langley, a self-professed geek of 30 years, imbues his knowledge of surviving the modern world as a geek in The Geek Handbook. The jocks have Bear Grylls for survival tips, nerds you now have your equivalent.

Langley celebrates geek culture with quotes and anecdotes from geek cult figures such as Sheldon Cooper and Felicia Day, and covers geek tech, geek movies and pretty much geek everything. He also gives advice in areas of life that the geek does not typically excel at – social interaction, dating, cooking and raising children.
