      I'm a dude, and previously have enjoyed the Geek Dad project books very much. The Geek Mom book is another animal, with a different approach and contents, but one that ultimately I think even more highly of. The Geek Dad books are almost entirely project-focused: a few pages of a project, followed by another project, on and on. There are some good projects and recipes in the Geek Mom book, but the book also adds more than this, it helps inspire both in its adult reader (of either gender, I must [...]

      Never have I been so proud to be a geek mom. In my school days, the term geek was not used an a compliment (along with nerd), but I think I need a badge that reads, "Proud Geek Mom." With my professed love for Dr. Horrible and Buffy the Vampire's musical episode, it's safe to say that I"m a card carrying member of the club.Thanks to the new book Geek Mom: Projects, Tips, and Adventures for Moms and Their 21st-Century Families, I can share my geeky passions with my kids. The book is co-written by [...]

    3. Michelle Cristiani on said:

      I like the Geek Mom blog pretty well, but like many blogs-turned-books, this one seems like a lot of filler and not enough substance. The book is mostly targeted to the larger audience - geeks have something to offer everyone! And in doing so, it falls short for someone like me. It preaches to the choir. And then every once in a while, there will be a monologue about how to talk to non-geek moms. The book has to make up its mind who it's talking to. I also don't get why parents need books to rem [...]

      You don't have to give up RPG, video gaming, cosplay, comics, gardening, space camp, etc. just because you have kids. Bring them along! I have a past as a comic book geek and am married to a Geek Dad. When hunting up activities and projects I might try with my four year old, I find it easy to come up with cut & paste type projects, and harder to find things that are STEM oriented. All manner of geekery is celebrated here, though I think it's a little heavier on the tech/gaming geekery than f [...]

      This book is great in theory, not so much in delivery. Garden like a geek! Rocks like a geek! Music! Cosplay! Blank cards! Home schooling! It's like they tried to cram everything in as quickly as possible, to show hey, Geeks can be cool, too!The problem is that this book is most likely going to be picked up by those same Geeks who actually kind of know about that already. And there's not much here for us. ::shrug:: My kid thinks wearing glasses makes her a "geek", so what do I know.

    6. Meril on said:

      Book is if mom is a geek and wants to make her kids the same way. I am an SF and anime fan who doesn't do the con scene, and the Resident Kid isn't a geek supergenius, just a regular kid who likes science and nature. My first reaction to the book was that it was as if Donna Erickson watched too much bad skiffy. I'll just pick up some books of simple science experiments to complement the Erickson books I already have, as well as the young birder resources and various kid cookbooks.

    7. Sara on said:

      Not what I hoped it would be. I thought it was a full book of activity and craft ideas. It was actually about 50% text, little sections by each of the authors explaining about different types of geekery and how that has to do with mom-ing, and then a couple of activity ideas in each section. I wasn't too interested in the activities either, especially because I have 3YO and most are for older kids.

    8. Nicole Kapise-Perkins on said:

      This book was such a disappointment. Apparently Geek Moms like myself are only interested in cooking, making costumes and jewelry, reading about superheroes and building secret hideouts out of boxes. The only science in this book was making borax crystals and ooblek. I really expected hands-on simple STEM projects. My son has a subscription to Kiwi Crate, and the monthly projects he gets in the mail are so much more geek-worthy.

    9. Rachel Cutler on said:

      I got it looking for ideas of things to do with my daughter. More than half of what is in the book I had already done with her. They all seemed pretty obvious for a mom who is also a geek. It seemed to be targeted to non-geek people married to geeks who need help with the kids who also turn out geeky.

    10. Angie on said:

      This book would have been incredibly helpful if Christopher was a couple years younger. There were clever ideas for indoor games and science experiments. The information was still cool as something for me to use at a library program or with my nieces. I recommend it for parents who are geeky and embrace it!

    11. C on said:

      This book would make a great gift for a geek-mom-to-be or one with little ones. Some of the stuff in there is downright off the charts wacky (don't blow up your microwave with the grape trick), but it'd make a fun conversation piece with some fun projects, ideas and things to talk about/try with the kiddos.

    12. Amanda on said:

      This was a fun book. It offered many ideas for projects to do with your kids, a book list here or there, as well as occasional "just for mom" sections, like how to relate to the non-geek mom. Some of the projects look really fun and others just look really messy (but presumably, also fun?).

    13. Sarah on said:

      I feel like this is a book I should own, just so I can thumb through it at my leisure. It doesn't seem to do well on the KindleBut! I've got two projects marked as interesting and am excited to try them with my little!

    14. Eirajel on said:

      Perfect for what I was looking for at the time. I knew I was a bit geeky but didn't really know how to transmits bits and pieces of my geekiness to my little girl. So there are tons of get great tips, crafts, experiments and recipes. Really helpful new hobbies to explore too.

    15. Katherine on said:

      May not be a mom, but I saw the name and decided to check it out. Interesting, funny - not sure how much is applicable for everybody.

    16. Amanda on said:

      I read sections of this and skimmed the rest (was looking for Summer Reading inspiration); nifty ideas! Don't agree with everything therein, but that's what an open mind is for, yes?

    17. Melanie R Meadors on said:

      This is just a fun book :). Lots of great project ideas to do with the kids. I homeschool, and thought it provided lots of good starting points for larger research and learning experiences.

    18. Kristie (fabk) on said:

      Wow! What a fantastic book! I can hardly wait until babe is old enough to start teaching him my geeky ways! Lots of great ideas in this book!

    19. Angie on said:

      I wish I still had little kids. It would have been a blast to do some of the activities in this book.

    20. Lisa on said:

      This was a lot of fun. There is a bit of most everything in it. I enjoyed the bits on costuming and introducing tea to the family table.
