Geek Pride Day got me thinking about great books to pull together to make a display celebrating geek/nerd/dork pride. When Ana Watson’s brother ditches a high school trip to run wild at Washingcon, type-A Ana knows that she must find him or risk her last shot at freedom from her extra-controlling parents. And her quest is a hilarious tour through high-school clique-dom, with a surprising stop along the way–the Dungeons and Dragons crowd, who out-nerd everyone. And could she really be crushing on a guy with too-short pants and too-white gym shoes?
In her desperation, she’s forced to enlist the last person she’d ever want to spend time with—slacker Zak Duquette—to help find her brother before morning comes. If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?

By the end of the competition, many of the contestants say that they have learned much about interacting with people from a different social group (and positive lessons about the character of people from that group), positive things about themselves and their own character, and often something about human nature in general.At the end of the day, the only person who can give you insight into man problems is—that’s right—a man! What guy would give up all his dating advantages by spilling the goods? A self-confessed serial dater and Bad Boy, Steve is telling all for the benefit of womankind.Every guy is at least part Bad Boy, and in The Manual, this prime specimen reveals what every woman needs to know to counter Bad Boy tactics, both amateur and professional.Here were smart, funny, good-looking guys surrounded by single women who were to be asked out - and not a whole lot was happening. Smart people created nearly everything that I value - Beethoven's late string quartets, my HP laser printer, Feynman's lectures, suffer like I did? Set up the whole date: where, when, how, and in what outfit. Clues cure cluelessness, so I provided some clues for the smart boys. Wimpiness may be the root of all the dating woes of smart men.
