We gave it a B

A self-confessed ”total computer geek,” Dave Barry structures this silly, tasteless, and extremely funny book just like a real computer manual, complete with useless tips (”Word Processing: How to Press an Enormous Number of Keys Without Ever Actually Writing Anything”) and question-and-answer sections (Who runs the Internet? ”A 13-year-old named Jason”). Even with bonus reportage from the world’s largest cybersmut convention, Dave Barry in Cyberspace is overall not as LOL (chat-room-speak for ”laughing out loud”) a read as, say, Dave Barry’s Guide to Guys. But geek humor is, after all, pretty geeky. B
