I'm an indie and webcomics geek with a small passion for some tabletop gaming.
We had the whole "fake geek girl" rant from Joe Peacock all too recently.
I'm sure that plenty of the people who liked this review could share similar stories, either personal or one's they have heard from others.
As of the time of this posting, I still have not read this book.
I turned down the author's offer of an ARC due to having too many aggravating things going on in my life at the time (and said aggravations have not lessened sadly) and could not dedicate the time to give the book a decent review.
Smith provides tips on preparing for the date, how to dress (and smell), and how to know things are getting serious.
The subject of sex is addressed but not dwelt on, but it really felt like the perfect amount of attention to the subject.
The book's description is clearly for the male geek only, and this all to common focus just brought up so many connections to how my geekiness is not relevant simply due to my gender.
If I mention I read comics, the assumption is usually that it's either Wonder Woman or manga love stories.
The book is targeted for single men, though most of the information is highly relevant to women and that issue is addressed right at the start.
As for me: I've been married for thirteen years, since I was 20.
That being said, I have noticed that the book is available at my local library, so I'll give it a grab after the holidays.
