The Ladybird Book of The Nerd:Ladybird for Grown-Ups Joel Morris, Jason Hazeley
´A gripping read´ Adam Grant, bestselling author of Originals Reddit hails itself as ´the front page of the Internet´. It´s the sixth most-visited website in the world - and yet, millions have no idea what it is. They should be paying attention. This definitive account of the birth and life of Reddit is perfect for readers of The Everything Store, Googled and The Facebook Effect. We Are the Nerds takes readers inside this captivating, maddening enterprise, whose army of obsessed users have been credited with everything from solving crimes and spurring millions in charitable donations to seeding alt-right fury and even landing Donald Trump in the White House. Reddit has become a mirror of the Internet itself: It has dark trenches, shiny memes, malicious trolls, and a heart-warming ability to connect people across cultures, oceans, and ideological divides. This is the gripping story of how Reddit´s founders, Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian, transformed themselves from student video-gamers into Silicon Valley millionaires as they turned their creation into an icon of the digital age. But the journey was often fraught. Reporting on Reddit for more than six years, conducting hundreds of interviews and gaining exclusive access to its founders, Christine Lagorio-Chafkin has written the definitive account of the birth and life of Reddit. Packed with revelatory details about its biggest triumphs and controversies, this inside look at Reddit includes fresh insights on the relationship between Huffman and Ohanian, staff turmoil, the tragic life of Aaron Swartz, and Reddit´s struggle to become profitable. In a time when we are increasingly concerned about privacy and manipulation on social platforms, We Are the Nerds reveals Reddit´s central role in the dissemination of culture and information in history´s first fully digital century. Rigorously reported and highly entertaining, We Are the Nerds explores how this unique platform has changed the way we all communicate today.

A virus has infected Arlington, Virginia, home of NERDS headquarters, and it´s much worse than your run-of-the-mill flu. Instead of coughing and sneezing, the victims of this voracious virus are transformed into superintelligent criminal masterminds. Soon nearly everyone - including some of the NERDS team - is plotting to take over the world. And who´s to blame for this nasty infection? None other than former NERDS teammate Heathcliff Hodges. With more people breaking out into evil cackles every day, it´s up to Flinch, the hyperactive superspy with a sweet tooth, to stop the virus. He needs to destroy the virus at its source, and to do that he´s going to have to get inside Heathcliff´s head - literally. Flinch will have to miniaturize himself and take a fantastic voyage through the supervillain´s body to fight white blood cells, stomach acid, and a nest of nasty nanobytes in the hope that he can save the world from...the Villain Virus. 1.

National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society (NERDS Book One): Michael Buckley
Die Wahrheit ist irgendwo da draußen ... Was können wir wissen? Was sollen wir tun? Was dürfen wir hoffen? Große Fragen, die schon so manchen in die Arme der Philosophen oder - schlimmer noch - der Religion getrieben haben. Stephen H. Segal zeigt, dass es auch anders geht: Die wirklich wichtigen Weisheiten finden wir nämlich nicht in den alten Schmökern wie der Bibel, sondern in Superheldencomics, Fantasyserien und Science-Fiction-Filmen. Also: Kirk statt Kant und Meister Yoda statt Papst Franziskus. Für alle, die sich schon immer gefragt haben, was wir aus >Der Herr der Ringe The Big Lebowski Spiderman Big Bang Theory Doctor Who Star Wars< lernen können.
New York Times best-selling author of the Sisters Grimm stories, Michael Buckley created a hilarious new storyline with the first book in his N.E.R.D.S. series. In this side-splitting follow-up, Goonies-meets-James-Bond-style hijinks continue with a group of unpopular fifth-graders who run a spy network right under their teachers’ noses. Their tech-loving, geeky ways may get them shunned by the ´´it” crowd, but with a little help from science, these kids’ most dweeby qualities become big-time weapons in the fight against super-villains. 1.
