Aug 8, 2010Note the title begins with "A Girl's Guide," not "A Militant Feminist's Guide." Ignore the hate reviews below. This is a charming as well as practical look at relationships with introverted, technology-minded men.
Mar 27, 2010I am honestly repulsed by this. This makes every single guy I know seem like a total loser when they're really nice people. Not to mention that I am also a total geek. This was extremely offensive to me as well. Seriously, this is not something I recomend anyone buy
Mar 14, 2010REALLY? "A Girl's Guide to Dating a Geek?" It's 2010. This title infers that girls cannot be geeks. It also fuels the notion that more than one girl has the time/interest to read a book on how to date her intellectually superior boyfriend (wait- I bet his brain is bigger, too!). This philosophy is archaic. What woman needs to read a book on how to be with her typified significant other? Why don't we just talk about hair and nails, smack our gum, and sit on the bench while our boyfriends play on the field? Why don't we just not raise our hands when we know the answer so as not to appear too smart? Let's leave the geekhood to those smart boys!
Dec 11, 2009I don't know about anyone else but I found this book super offensive. Speaking as not only a female geek, of which the author seems to think there are none, and as a woman dating a geek I find this book absolutely repulsive. The first red-flag being the beginning descriptions of geeks in general(I'll have you note my boyfriend is classified as non-geek by her standards but he's pretty geeky here in the real world). I haven't even bothered to finish it, I've gotten maybe half-way through it and I'm just absolutely insulted. For myself, my friends and my boyfriend. If this was written as humor I do not see an ounce of it. What I see is a very hateful book. If I could figure out to give it zero stars I would.
Oct 15, 2009As a human being and educator who has observed the geek in his natural habitat ( the classroom) I have to agree with Omi’s assessment of the humanoid we refer to as “geek”. While it is generally agreed that “nerds” are subpar members of the human species, most would agree that anyone resembling the geek has potential. Geeks(Y) are often highly intelligent who pursue fabulous degrees ( medical, engineering, chemistry, ect..) which translates into a useful education which attracts dollars which further translates into a husband who will provide a good living for figure X. That’s you girls. While it may cost you many trips to the store to ensure the freezer is stocked with an assortment of crappy frozen pizzas, it is well worth your time when you consider what you get in exchange: a nice home, a good neighborhood, and cello lessons for little Chester. You will also need to purchase an expensive washer/dryer to keep said geek's socks and clothes in minty fresh condition. The downside is... More > that you will have to learn to bake pies, but hey, a pie in exchange for all the things you will receive in return is a cheap price to pay. The question is, can a man be a geek and still hold on to his guy card? I think yes. Masculinity comes in many forms and that includes highly intelligent and inquisitive minds who just happen not to bathe on a regular basis; minor annoyance when you consider you will be married to Dr. Geek, Professor Geek, or Scientist/ Inventor/ Entrepreneur Geek. “A Girl’s Guide to Dating a Geek” is a clever, well-written, dare I say thesis? on the male egghead called geek. It is easy to read for the rest of us non PhD’s and anyone who has ever discussed CPU’s, been involved in LARP’s, or attended a LAN party ( which is one of the most bizarre gathering of smelly people I have ever seen) will know that she has been in the company of a geek. I did have some trouble locating the author's website until I came up with oMi( notice the capital M) Online which took me right there. The website is not only hilarious, but entertaining as well. I thoroughly recommend this creative one-of-a-kind book by Omi M. Inouye. B.J. Bradley author How to Hold on to Your Guy Card ( In a Chick's World)< Less
