"THE GEEKS HAVE INHERITED THE EARTH.
"Computer nerds are our titans of industry; comic-book superheroes are our Hollywood idols; the Internet is our night on the town. Clearly, geeks know something about life in the 21st century that other folks don t something we all can learn from. Geek Wisdom takes as gospel some 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes from movies ( Where we re going, we don t need roads ), television ( Now we know and knowing is half the battle ), literature ( All that is gold does not glitter ), games, science, the Internet, and more. Now these beloved pearls of modern-day culture have been painstakingly interpreted by a diverse team of hardcore nerds with their imaginations turned up to 11. Yes, this collection of mini-essays is by, for, and about geeks but it s just so surprisingly profound, the rest of us would have to be dorks not to read it. So say we all."
