"Love the title and the premise." --The New York Times

Review

How to Be a Geek Goddess "proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Christina Tynan-Wood totally 'gets' where men and women divide in terms of technology."

This is a great book! It DOES tell you everything you need to know before purchasing techy stuff. I love the format, the "Dear Geek Goddess" letters make it a really entertaining read. Also, the chapters on protecting your kids when they are online are just priceless. Every mom should read that part! I would highly recommend this book!

You don't have to sacrifice femininity for efficiency. "How to be a Geek Goddess: Practical Advice for Using Computers with Smarts and Style" is a woman's guide to the world of all things computer. Ranging from everything involving from purchasing a computer, staying safe from viruses and malware, using the internet to its fullest extent, and avoiding being that one aunt or mother who wouldn't know a computer from a shovel, "How to be a Geek Goddess" is an ideal acquisition to those who want to avoid ignorance in the necessary modern art of computer use.

....to appreciate this book. you don't even have to be a woman. though it's aimed specifically at women of a certain age, HTBAGG offers tons of info even blustery pompous men could use -- like how and where to set up a home computer, ways to save money shopping online, and the like. all written in a breezy informative style that lets you dip in at any point and pull out helpful stuff. (and yes, I do happen the know the author personally -- but it's still a fine book.)
