"... A call to arms for every girl who has ever obsessed over music, comics, film, comedy, books, crafts, fashion, or anything else under the Death Star. Music geek girl Leslie Simon offers an overview of the geek elite by covering groundbreaking women, hall-of-famers, ultimate love matches, and potential frenemies, along with her top picks for playlists, books, movies, and websites"--P. [4] of cover.

For every girl who marches to the beat of her own drum, Leslie Simon has your manifesto: a smart, expansive, and winningly entertaining celebration of comedy queens, film geeks, bookworms, craft mavens, indie chicks, and other all-star women. Following the breakaway hit book Everybody Hurts, Simon’s energizing look at today’s pop-culture and counterculture heroines—like Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, Sofia Coppola, Regina Spektor, and Jenny Hart—is an empowering, eye-opening, and, above all, fun journey. Readers of The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking and The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life will love joining forces as Geek Girls Unite!

The author is a editor, and while she obviously holds great music geek cred, the other -doms she writes about are just as obviously not her areas of expertise. She lost me at page 10 with her repeated "Dr. Who" bits. Any Whovian worth their -ian knows that it is Doctor, not Dr. Never Dr. This error from the get-go brings into question the entire book.

It seems like a jump on the geek bandwagon for a buck, no more, no less. Skip it.
