She talks about how if you date a geek, and go to a geek convention, you should find a hot "booth babe" and commence mocking all the geeks. There are also a few chapters on how to "normalize" a geek. Those are far more entertaining than a book that is basically one long insult. I bought this book as a gift for my girlfriend with the prior knowledge that I would fit into several of the pigeon holes this book defined as geek.
She completely debases people she considers "nerds," only slightly exulting geeks above their low station in life. why would you date someone with the expectation that this person will change? 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.
But “[a]rcades are another great venue” to meet girl geeks?
(Smith notes that his tome is mostly geared toward “geeks [who] come with XX chromosomes.” Gals might find most tips too gender-specific to be applicable.)At its core CPU, “The Geek’s Guide to Dating” assumes (perhaps unfairly or insultingly) that geeks are their own species, requiring special care, feeding, and owner’s manual.

My boyfriend bought this for me from Think Geek after many dropped hints. I am not to sure on any valuable lessons from this book but it did have clever moments. Of the 27 questions ranging from hygiene, physical appearance, college degree, and number of video game consoles owned/plugged in, a little over half fit me perfectly. The author even recommends a few methods of sabotaging a geek's favorite clothing and/or his internet access. Although, there is a very accurate compilation of gifts and methods of apology for when a woman plays the word/mind games all women play.
The Pie Scale is something girls can learn from for any situation with guys. Ignoring the overall intellectually superior premise of this book, it's ignorant of the author to think she can actually train a geek with merely pie; unless, of course, she's talking about the tongue-in-cheek Cherry Pie about which Warrant sang in the early 90s. Written in a language that requires very little geekiness to understand, it's a perfect nightstand book for any woman wanting to keep daily tabs on her man's geek level. With flow charts, organizational charts, molecule diagrams, and even circuit diagrams - that I appreciated immensely - it's quintessential geek.
As a hybrid Jock Geek and Know it all Geek, I feel comfortable in recommending this book for anyone who wants to really know the truth about geekdom.
