American Nerd: The Story of My People is funny and delightful. It is a must read for nerds, dorks and dweebs everywhere. The book was disjointed at times but overall an enjoyable look at nerdom and all its wonders.
Benjamin Nugent reflects on stories of his youth and finding acceptance in his group of nerd friends. It is in these moments Nugent shines. He is charming, funny and thought provoking. Nerds of the world, this is our story told by one of our own.
