Read in February, 2009

I quite enjoyed this chapbook collection of essays from Wil Wheaton, the uber-geek. His style is very personal and approachable, and I quite enjoy the way he writes in general.

While I enjoyed all of the essays, I found the included piece from his upcoming "Memories of the Future" (a collection of his snarky reviews of episodes of Star Trek:TNG) particularly amusing.

It's a self-published book via Lulu's print-on-demand service. I actually ordered the PDF ebook version so I could read it on my Kindle. There's some great advantages to this, as he gets a more substantial percentage of the sales, and thanks to print-on-demand he doesn't end up with unused stock. The only downside to this is that there were a few spots in the books containing typos that a copy editor would have been been able to catch for him. Or not, I've read my fair share of traditionally published books that contain typographical errors.

Anyway, it's well worth a read for all of us geeks.
