This is the only book that addresses etiquette and manners as they apply specifically to computer geeks and the technical business community. Though humorous and entertaining in style with plenty of drawings and cartoons throughout, ""Geek Etiquette"" is nevertheless a serious look at behavioral ""best practices"" for topics including:

* Social behavior, such as introductions, eating in company, and the use of drink and drugs

* On the job behavior, including dress codes, and dealing with non-geeks, contracts and meetings

* Etiquette in the technical community, such as behavior in online forums, dealing with user groups, and joining an open source project

* Etiquette at home, including the geek household, entertaining, and providing tech support for friends and family

This amazing book also discusses science fiction fandom, role-playing games, online gaming and LAN parties, recreational medievalism, and other elements of the usual geek social life. And along with tips on personal grooming, ""Geek Etiquette"" offers a survival guide in the non-geek universe that deals with births, deaths, and marriages, parties and gifts, travel, theatre and sporting events, and the advanced course in dress codes for appearances in public. Your geek customers will laugh and have a good time, but they'll also learn a few things (although they may never admit it to others).
