    Nerds by David Anderegg characters ¶ 100 Nerds by David AndereThis month I read NERDS How Dorks Dweebs Techies and Trekkies Can Save America and Why They Might Be Our Last Hope by David Anderegg PhDIn addition to his lengthy title both name of the book and his own name Anderegg addresses a whole area of profiling and discrimination that I have not spent all that much time considering Anderegg focuses on the effects of bullying on kids labeled as nerds or geeks or dorks but instead of looking at how individual cases can be detrimental he focuses his attention on the larger issue of what it means in his terms to be an anti intellectualist society Throughout the book he chronicles examples of nerdiness as portrayed by the media and what he has uncovered as a clinical psychologist in the perceptions of young people An overwhelming theme is that although there is no clearly definable way

    Nerds by David Anderegg characters ¶ 100 Nerds by David AndereEasy read funny and being a proud nerd there are some parts that are easily to relate to My biggest ualm with this book is that Andregg neglects to define nerd and geek until about halfway through the book I think the scope should be defined early in the analysis Yes there are differences; yes they matter He does raise a few points about how to encourage children to be themselves and how difficult it can be for kids to fit in but he provides no concrete solutions I wanted a little

    Nerds by David Anderegg characters ¶ 100 Nerds by David AndereLoved it Does that make me a nerd Anderegg breaks down the NerdGeek stereotype and points out that it is largely what is pushing America into the background in science and math Even in elementary school American kids think they know what a nerd is and that they don't want to be one They intentionally perform poorly on math tests and opt out of advanced math and science courses He suggests some approaches to turning this around It is well worth the time to read it especially
