nugent and i see the culture of nerds really differently. it becomes clear in the last chapter how much he loathed that part of himself and how he sought to separate himself from it - something i guess i can relate to when i think about my own adolsecence. but as an adult, i find i can embrace that time and see it for what it was - sorting shit out. i found the book to be much stiffer and more historically oriented than i'd expected it to be.
