Buy A Girl's Guide to Dating a Geek by Omi M. Inouye (Paperback) online at What woman needs to read a book on how to be with her typified. (GB); Bookseller Inventory #: GOR; Title: A Girl's Guide to Dating a Geek; Author: Inouye, Omi M; Format/binding:Paperback; Book condition: Used. If you are a geeky guy or a girl wanting to understand her game obsessed boyfriend or guy friends this is a book to read. I am not to sure on any valuable lessons.
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.
Geeks Y are often highly intelligent who pursue fabulous degrees medical, engineering, chemistry, ect. 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: The question is, can a man be a geek and still hold on to his guy card?
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.
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. In short, this book could have been WAY better. As someone who has been dating a geek for the last five years, I have often read how-to articles and so forth online that are similar to the idea of this book -- good-naturedly teasing geeky guys and giving women tips for living with them.
Those are far more entertaining than a book that is basically one long insult. Looking at ratings on Amazon, they are extremely polarized -- half and half 1 star and 5 star ratings.
I guess you either love this book, or you hate it.How To Meet/Talk to Nerdy Girls/Guys

Geeks and nerds doesn't have a strict correlation, rather causality. Many grammar errors even noticed by a non native speaker.

Perhaps I am too much of an geek myself. I rolled my eyes over most of the graphics because they were either old jokes or not funny at all.
The curves are either too simplified or have no relevance and proposition whatsoever. Excluding the fact of m Offensive and horribly wrong.

Excluding the fact of missing references. For example the color wheel paragraph Wardrobe from Newton has not the purpose of complementary colors. It was to show the blending of colors and the spectrum of a rainbow. The color theory states that artists such as Boulet or Goethe brought the conclusion from the light spectrum to the complementary colors.
So I cringed over such wrongly delivered informations. For a good book into geekdom I would recommend a rather funny one that doesn't drag everything trough the mudd and portrays geeks healthier. Sure there are the stereotypes out there but that has not to be the case for each and everyone of them.

The guide also contains a questionnaire that allows your geek to determine what type of geek he may be, as well as a Valentine's card written in binary code, and several other things that only a geek could understand. Despite the humor of this guide, it was written in a very technical style which forced me to reread some paragraphs again.

I know it wasn't published by a large house, but it was- in some places- very badly produced.
