"The Geek's Guide to Dating" by Eric Smith
The Geek's Guide to Dating has lots of tips and tricks for finding (and keeping) one's true love. While I had quite a bit of fun reading this book, I'm not sure how much I would actually use it as a guide for real life dating. I enjoyed the fun references, the art style and just the overall nerdiness of the book, but I don't think I would necessarily use it to get real advise (this coming from someone in a relationship, so I could be totally wrong). However, even if you aren't seeking relationship advise, this book is just fun. I spend a lot of my time with various geeks, nerds, and other insert-correct-sysnonym-here and a good chunk of that time is spent either staring blankly until they explain the reference or getting way to excited because I actually knew what they were talking about. I also do this while watching Gilmore Girls. So that part of the this book that I enjoyed the most was seeing which references I understood (and researching the ones I didn't). This is definitely a book to read if just for the entertainment purposes. However, I would absolutely love to hear if anyone is able to put the advise in this book to use in their real life too!
