All in all, if you're looking for a laugh, check it out!
This book was extremely cute, totally applied to my life, and definitely made me laugh out loud a few times.
The production/editiong of the book bothered me though.
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.
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.

Inouye claims that she is "geekier" than other girls, but for some reason this book is FULL of grammatical errors and typos. I know not everyone can spell, but for goodness sake, everyone can proofread, or get someone else to do it for them! I laughed out loud at so many things in this book (and I find it funny that the author's friends didn't think she was the right person to write this as she was the "geekiest and least feminine girl" they knew -- I think it worked to her advantage in the field work, as she looked as if she belonged -- easier to watch the antics. And she is constantly referring to geeky guys as "ugly." Geez. Looking at ratings on Amazon, they are extremely polarized -- half and half 1 star and 5 star ratings. I am giving it two stars, because it's a great concept, just horrible execution. 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.
