In the book Nerd Do Well: A Small Boy’s Journey To Becoming a Big Kid, Simon Pegg writes about his childhood, being a nerd, and how he ultimately came to live the dream and actually participate in the culture that helps mold young nerdlings into the pseudo-men and women that we are today.
I have to admit that I’m not one for memoirs. Only a handful of people are really worth reading about, and Pegg admits to being uncomfortable with the whole idea—which is why he’s infused the story with hilarious fan fiction involving his robot butler Canterbury and the epic struggle to meet deadlines for writing the book.
All in all, the book is as funny and entertaining as you would expect a work from Simon Pegg to be. It’s also surprisingly candid. Definitely worth a read—especially if you are a fan of his films.
The book is available starting today at fine bookstores everywhere, but we are giving away two copies to lucky Nerd Approved readers!
