With text written by self-confessed geek James Clarke and accompanied by over 100 infographics that have been specially commissioned for this book, The Year of the Geek celebrates all things geek in a new and intriguing way.

John Hughes meets Comic Con in this novel about a teenager who is trying to get his best friend to fall in love with him that’s an “unabashed love letter and delightful inside joke for comic enthusiasts” (Kirkus Reviews). Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy... Archie and Veronica... Althena and Noth... ...Graham and Roxy? Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since. But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books. When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be...even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.

Add all of that to a new friend who threatens to overwhelm the tenuous balance. Brian Landis and his friends Harry, Kathryn, and Melinda are about to become sophomores at Afton High School when Jimmy Rosen and his family move to town from Ohio. Jimmy is really skinny. He’s a sickly kid who can’t play sports like the other students. Jimmy likes playing cards and games and listening to classical music. He’s funny, he’s witty, and he knows how to say things that make people laugh. Harry, Brian, and the gang befriend Jimmy but there are others at the high school who can’t accept Jimmy. There’s a lot of bullying and meanness, and by the end of the year, things just explode. Jimmy the Geek, a novel for teens, calls attention to the subjects of discrimination and its effects on kids. It shares a story of friendships, loyalty, betrayal, homophobia, bullying, and bigotry.

The Untold History of Television provides a captivating glimpse behind the scenes of those groundbreaking shows that have both defined and changed the pop culture landscape. A short-lived cult classic, Freaks and Geeks proved that a television show about teenagers could reach beyond the superficial by confronting—and redefining—high school stereotypes. In this text, Kathleen Olmstead investigates the ups and downs of the show “that pushed the beautiful people aside and gave us stories about those usually ignored by television.” The ebook contains information about the inception and development of the series, thought-provoking episode analysis, and on-the-set stories about the cast and crew.

Business managers (suits) and technology professionals (geeks) have become warring camps in too many companies. While both groups have no trouble following the lingo of their own specialties, when they have to communicate with each other, neither side fully understands — or wants to understand — the other. And that's a big problem in an increasingly technology-dependent business environment where success depends on the smooth integration of both business savvy and technological expertise. Bill Pfleging — a respected computer and Web consultant — and Minda Zetlin — a veteran business writer — explore, in this insightful, witty, and very instructive book, the culture clash that pervades nearly every business-technology interaction. The Geek Gap provides members of both camps a practical guide to working together effectively. Using many real-world examples, the authors vividly illustrate the consequences in time, money, careers, and even lives when these separate cultures fail to communicate. The authors provide practical solutions for building trust between business and computer professionals. The book is filled with tips aimed at geeks and suits to help each group understand the other, communicate in what amounts to a foreign language, and get what they need to do their jobs effectively. The authors profile companies and individual executives who have successfully bridged the gap by conducting events that bring the two groups together, switching jobs from one area to the other, creating whole new careers as "go-betweens," and much, much more. This is the first book to directly address issues of communication and understanding between business and technology people. The Geek Gap — in identifying this problem and providing numerous practical and workable solutions — is an indispensable guide for all.
