I saw these blurbs on your site. Are they real?
"The BBook of Geek is my number one. It'll have geeks laughing all the way to the Trek Convention." --Jonathan Frakes, Commander Williams T. Riker, Star Trek: The Next Generation
"I don't start a day without first checking BBspot. The BBook of Geek only solidifies Brian Briggs's position as the king of geek humor." --Joel Hodgson, MST3K and Cinematic Titanic
"The BBook of Geek will be required reading at the Googleplex."--Larry Page, co-founder of Google

Subject: On quotes for The BBook of Geek
My 2cents: Jonathan Frakes’ and Larry Page’s comments are the best choices for selling your book.
Frakes is a well known geek icon, an entertainer, and his comments were highly enthusiastic.
Page is a businessman geek and his endorsement would get people other than those living in basements to buy the book.
Hope this helps.

Subject: Most Effective Quotes

I'd definitely say the last two are the best quotes. One is
flattering, the other is also amusing. The first one is more
stereotypically geeky, and not quite as good. Just my two cents.

Subject: BBook of Geek quotes
Riker is the Jar Jar Binks of the Trekverse. I'm sure Jonathan Frakes
is a really nice guy once you get to know him, but having his quote on
the cover may be a tiny bit counterproductive.
