The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun, by Yours Truly

In just one week, The Geek Dad’s Guide to Weekend Fun: Cool Hacks, Cutting-Edge Games, and More Awesome Projects for the Whole Family will hit the proverbial shelves (the actual shelves, at least at my local Borders and Barnes & Noble, have all gone away). While this book is very much an in-kind sequel to my first collection of geeky projects, I really feel this one goes to eleven. Not only is it loaded with a new batch of great things to do with your kids, with ideas from myself and many of the other GeekDad writers, there’s also a selection of projects and prose by some very cool geeky celebrities, like Ken Jennings (the Jeopardy champ), Chris Anderson (our founding geek-father), Rod Roddenberry (keeper of the Star Trek flame), Patrick Norton (tech guru), David Hewlett (sci-fi acting fave), and more. I can’t tell you how excited I am about it!

Some of the projects included:

  • NERF Dart Blowgun
  • Backyard Zip Line
  • Measuring the Speed of Light With Chocolate
  • Pun Wars
  • And many more!
  • So beware the coming storm of PR hits that may strike a small-to-mid-size radio station or podcast near you. And feel free to stop by GeekDadBook.com where I’ll be posting updates as they occur. And if you’re so inclined, stop by one of these fine retail outlets to pre-order the book now:

    Amazon
    Barnes & Noble
    IndieBound
    Powell’s
    (It’ll also go on sale at ThinkGeek, too!)
