At the very beginning of the book there is a flow chart quiz, “What Kind of Nerd Are You?”, so you can discover if you’re a scientist, a culture connoisseur, a tech expert, a genius at geography, or a designer. Once you’ve found out your special interest, you can take another flow chart quiz to find your niche within that subject. No matter if your interests are sports, music, art, science, virtual reality tech, cartography, zoology, genetics, or botany, there is a cool quiz to take and a whole book full of cool information on that subject!
I love how rich the colors are on every page of this book! The photographs are so colorful, and each section is color-coded so you can navigate through the alphabetical entries with ease.
With a wide range of subjects, there is something in here to interest everyone. There is even an entry for zombies! Some of the entries are short, but some are grouped together under a general heading. For instance, there is an entire page under C devoted to “Comic Book Heroes” with amazing factoids and details about 26 superheroes.
There are also quotes about nerds or from famous nerds throughout history. There’s a quote from Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), saying how nerds are cool!
Nerds truly make the world go round with their passion for knowledge!
