Such a promising title: American Nerd: The Story of My People. I was super-excited to get this book — loved the idea — a chronicling of nerd culture in America (and beyond, really), and with supporting quotes from Klosterman & Feig. But while there was some sorta interesting stuff in there, mostly I found it to be sorta boring & esoteric. Not boring & esoteric in a Frink/Comic Book Store Guy kind of way, but boring & esoteric in more like an analysis of 19th century literature (which is actually in there). For me, loved the concept, didn’t love the book. But for the title alone, high marks for Nugent.
