I began reading Alexandra Robbins’s new book The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory, and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School. I am only a little over 20 pages into the book, and I can already tell this is a book that teachers and parents need to pay attention to. I may journal my thoughts as I read here at this blog as I have with other professional reading in the past. I haven’t read any of Robbins’s other books, but I have heard that The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids is also good.
As a child who had difficulty socially in school and who never was popular, I can relate the book’s message.
So… anyone want to read this one with me? I know that Gary Anderson is already reading it. Summer book club anyone?
Full disclosure: the publisher sent me a free copy of this book (not that it will impact any future reviews).
