Book Review: Revenge of the Nerd

Revenge of the Nerd is written by Curtis Armstrong who was one of the cast members of Revenge of the Nerds. I have never seen the movie but I knew a bunch of the cast was going to be at the Rhode Island Comic Con so I figured I’d check it out. (Fun fact: he ended up talking to my friends about the shirts I had made us. Of course, I was not with them at the time!)  The book talks about Curtis’ life with more of a focus on the movie and how it helped bring nerds to more mainstream.  Curtis says that not only does he play a nerd, he also is one in real life! He is a big Beatles nerd.  His family really wanted him to attend college, but he decided that he wanted to be an actor instead.  Also throughout the book are some of his diary/journal excerpts.  He actually was going to turn down the role of Booger at first! I thought the book was an interesting read despite not knowing much about Curtis or the movie beforehand so I think this book would be enjoyable for fans and those who are just curious as well 🙂

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
