内容紹介

THE GEEKS HAVE INHERITED THE EARTH.

Computer nerds are our titans of industry; comic-book superheroes are our Hollywood idols; the Internet is our night on the town. Clearly, geeks know something about life in the 21st century that other folks don’t—something we all can learn from. Geek Wisdom takes as gospel some 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes from movies (“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads”), television (“Now we know—and knowing is half the battle”), literature (“All that is gold does not glitter”), games, science, the Internet, and more. Now these beloved pearls of modern-day culture have been painstakingly interpreted by a diverse team of hardcore nerds with their imaginations turned up to 11. Yes, this collection of mini-essays is by, for, and about geeks—but it’s just so surprisingly profound, the rest of us would have to be dorks not to read it. So say we all.

レビュー

"Very smart looking tome."—Wired.com

“Geek Wisdom
 proves that insight needn’t come from dusty old tomes and the lips of long-dead philosophers. Maybe C-3P0 isn’t Socrates and The Superfriends aren’t a French Salon, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have anything to teach us.”—Suvudu.com
 
Geek Wisdom: The Sacred Teaching of Nerd Culture is not only an invaluable guide into geekdom it's also indispensable if you have to go undercover and penetrate a secret geek society.”—Neatorama.com

“Any good story, religious or not, can be deconstructed to find an underlying message. That’s the unifying theme of Geek Wisdom, which treats pop culture as a form of secular religion, delivering insights on life from talking robots, flying dragons and everything in between.”—PopMatters

“Premise is nothing short of brilliant.”—Florida Times Union

5つ星のうち 5.0 It's funny and thoughtful without ever being dumb. That's quite an achievement. 2011/8/7
By Esther Schindler - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|無料製品の Vine カスタマーレビュー (詳しくはこちら)
Every self-respecting techie can recite some quotes off the top of her head and expect every one of her friends to know its origin and context: "With great power comes great responsibility," or "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," or "Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration." You nodded at these, right? This is the book for you.

When I saw this short book among my Amazon Vine selections I thought that would be all it would be: A selection of large-print geek quotes, the nerdy equivalent of "Quotes for Writers" (I have several such titles because, y'know, I can't help myself). And that would be fine, because I could then attack-harumph about the selection (What?! Just one quote from Firefly?).

But Geek Wisdom is a little more than that, in a very nice way. Rather than try to assemble all the geek memes in one place, Stephen Segal uses these to illustrate how we use them "to guide us toward maturity by helping us ask and answer the big, cosmic questions about existence." And in so doing he illuminates why we care so much about these "sacred teachings." One page at a time, so we don't have to pretend this is incredibly deep, just enjoyable. It's like telling us that our favorite chocolate is also healthy for us.

The sayings and quotes and such are organized into sections examining wisdom about the self (My name is Inigo Montoya), wisdom about the universe (Billions and Billions), wisdom about the future (In the year 2929), etc. So under two quotes from Labyrinth (including "You have no power over me"), Segal discusses "girlhood in geekdom" with some sensitivity as well as humor: "...Which may be why David Bowie's androgynous, seductive, and artful Goblin King won the hearts and fantasies of so many geek girls. He was a bad boy... and yet, a pretty good babysitter. ... Bucking the trend of the typical Hollywood epic, Labyrinth showed a young woman learning to take responsibility for her actions, persevere in an unfair world, and own her sexual identity. She wasn't just a babe -- she was the babe with the power."

End result: This is a fun, quick-to-read book that is both good for geek quote-offs and thoughtful bathroom reading. If you're a geek, grab a copy. If you know one (and we are notoriously difficult to shop for, for some reason), it's a perfect *perfect* gift.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Entertaining if Mildly Predictable 2012/4/16
By Labarum - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|無料製品の Vine カスタマーレビュー (詳しくはこちら)
Whenenver some particular subsection of the popular culture reaches a critical mass, there is inevitably a panoply of amusing books written to capitalize and celebrate its newsworthiness. The pattern was set decades ago by "The Preppy Handbook" and the formula has made authors and publisheers much in the way of disposable income to those who manage to tap into either the subculture in question or the larger culture's perception of it.

"Geek Wisdom" is an entertaining if uneven contribution to this tradition with its subject all things geeky. Its cheeky overview of the philosophical side of geekiness is an times insightfully funny and at other times shallowly predictable but generally gives a few good laughs and a larger collection of smirks and smiles.

Like most books in the "amusing but knowing look at subculture" genre, it is a one sit read and will likely be passed on and only brought up in conversation to say "Yes I read that and it was cute." This one was particularly uneven but even the best are only meant to be amusing rather than profound. The book fits the genre well but whether it is a best seller or merely one of many forgettable books trending on the geek subculture will be a matter of timing rather than depth.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Motivating, insightful, and fun way to learn about geek/nerd culture! 2011/8/5
By Danny Yu - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|無料製品の Vine カスタマーレビュー (詳しくはこちら)
I love the premise and execution of this book. Segal et al. does a great job blending in quotes from geek/nerd culture with insight and motivation. I was moved with some of the explanations. I was surprised with some of the quotes and I learned many new things about this culture. One of my favorite new quotes from this book was from Edward Scissorhands, "I'm not finished," implying the importance of accepting and loving yourself.

You'll find yourself having many "ah ha" moments, but not without some new refreshing quotes and insight sprinkled in every once in a while.

The quotes are of great variety and is well rounded. Some of these include Edward Scissorhands, J.R.R Tolkien, Star Wars, Back to the Future, and Stan Lee. "Hasta La Vista, Baby."

The writing is brief, witty, yet has a friendly tone as well. Never did I feel like I was lectured by a superior geek to an amateur geek. The authors who contributed to this book want you to know about this culture's recent but rich history. Many new things I came across were explained and easily understood.

This is how quote books should be: well chosen quotes accompanied with nice brief insight about some geek/nerd history. You can also skip the explanations if you'd like. The quotes itself are already of profoundness and meaning. Also, many quotes were just flat out hilarious. Highly recommended book!

5つ星のうち 3.0 Short, But Entertaining, Run Through Geekdom 2011/8/18
By Bradley Bevers - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|無料製品の Vine カスタマーレビュー (詳しくはこちら)
The introduction of Geek Wisdom explains geekery as a religion, and this book as a collection of its teachings from the most entertaining sources. Its a good book and an entertaining read, but not a great one. Nerd culture is great all by itself . . . a page long discussion on the philosophy and meaning of a quote from the Clerks movie or an episode of the Simpsons takes away from the entertainment value of the book.

That being said, the quotes are pretty great to have all in one place and the anecdotes that give further information about the quotes at the bottom of each page are pretty good too. Its an interesting enough book to pick up if you love nerd culture and want something to flip through, but nothing more then that.

My favorites:

"That rug really tied the room together."

"To err is human; to really screw up requires the root password."

"Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"

"There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't"

"Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle!"

"Me? Fail English? That's unpossible!"

"What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

"It's dangerous to go alone! Take this."

"You take the blue pill and the story ends; you wake in your bed and you believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, and you stay in wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes."

A fun collection of nerdy quotes. Would have been a much better book with more quotes and less philosophizing.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Fun book for all ages 2011/8/10
By Guitar Man - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|無料製品の Vine カスタマーレビュー (詳しくはこちら)
I took this book with us on a long car trip with my wife, nephews and their girlfriends. We all had fun reading the various "geek/nerd" quotes and trying to figure out where they were from. Since most were popular culture references (Star Wars, Doctor Who, etc.) it was fun for all ages. There were a few obscure ones, but that just added to the fun. Really enjoyable read for the "geeks/nerds" in your life.
