Luke Skywalker Can't Read and Other Geeky Truths / Ryan Britt / 224 pgs

This book of geeky essays talks about a myriad of different subjects from the apparent functional illiteracy of the Star Wars Universe, to the huge use of literature in the Star Trek Universe, to the sexual awakening from watching Barbarella. I will complain that the shortest essay was about my fan favorite, Doctor Who, with just a quick little talk about kicking depression while watching a Doctor Who marathon on Netflix (of course, now, one must have Amazon Prime to do that). I really enjoyed the book and hope the author comes out with a Part 2 once the new Star Wars trilogy is finished. 

***Beware*** This book is not for the gentle reader. There's quite a few F Bombs dropped and talk about sex, pornography, etc.
