Full of whimsical 8-bit illustrations, The Geek’s Guide to Dating will teach fanboys everywhere to love long and prosper. As of the time of this posting, I still have not read this book. I'll just put it nice and simple: NOT ALL GEEKS ARE GUYS!

I turned down the author's offer of an ARC due to having too many aggravating things going on in my life at t I will admit to having not read the book. Added on December 11, 2013: Given that this short little review continues to get likes and comments, I thought I should comment further as to why I originally posted it.

Moreover, even if the book focused on the guy's point of view, the book description makes clear that this is about dating a non-geek. My feminine sensibilities do not make me immediately adverse to Star Wars bedsheets.

A guy going on and on about Metal Gear would drive me away, however. Frankly, the perils of inter-geek dating are far more interesting.

The book is targeted for single men, though most of the information is highly relevant to women and that issue is addressed right at the start. The text is laced with a constant stream of game and comic-inspired metaphors.

As for me: I've been married for thirteen years, since I was 20. They might annoy some people, but I got a huge kick out of it.

Though written mostly is for boys, the book is written in such a way that being a girl I still enjoyed I have taken "The Geek's Guide To Dating" by Eric Smith because of its very unique cover.

The book is targeted for single men, though most of the information is highly relevant to women and that issue is addressed right at the start.

That being said, I have noticed that the book is available at my local library, so I'll give it a grab after the holidays.

Despite all this, I stand by my original statement: "NOT ALL GEEKS ARE GUYS!

Geek dating a non-geek is a worthy topic, and--hey--you automatically avoid being called heteronormative by not insisting on which gender dates which gender.

Fundamentally, the book's title is where my problems with it start.
