Pragmatic Tips and Concrete Tricks for Navigating a Mixed (Geek/Normal) Marriage

About the Book

You might both be geeks, living in some kind of geek paradise collecting Star Wars figurines and comic books and doing scene by scene reenactments of Lord of the Rings. But more likely only one of you is. It is these relationships that are so tricky and that's why my wife and I decided to write this book. These are concrete techniques that we've applied to our (now 12+ year) marriage that were fundamental to our success.
