Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
The book is upbeat, but it misses what I thought was the target audience: young women whose parents want to keep them from becoming or remaining technologically adverse. The text needs a rigorous editing and a format that delivers with end-of-chapter takeaways, more graphics, and less droning text. Neither my daughter nor my wife were interested enough to do more than smile at the title that doesn't deliver. Revamp it, cut it, gussy it up, and the author and publishing company might have something.
