In At The Geek End by James Smith
Genre - Biographies & Memoir / Humor (PG)
Price - $1.99
IN AT THE GEEK END is the hilarious, madcap true story of surfer, and all-round action man, James Smith, who inadvertently stumbles into a career as a computer programmer in the hush-hush top secret defence industry.

Not only does he discover he's not cut out for the job, he also has to reconcile working with a diverse and impossible bunch of characters from alcoholics, power builders and nerds, to drop-outs, hippies and conformists – all working on multi-million defence projects that are often late and over budget.

Taking to the road as a freelance contractor does not alleviate the headaches. The intense cocktail of stress and boredom manifests itself into a series of practical jokes that go terribly wrong, whilst wayward romances and an eye-popping extreme sports regime, eat into his erratic earnings.

Living in bed and breakfast accommodation for eight years, he dreams to break away – find a new career. But financial pressures, and a doomed romance with a nurse working on the luxury ocean liner, QE2, leads James into a downward spiral – a high tech gypsy on a pathway to destruction. Whilst his colleagues experience nervous breakdowns, personal crises, and even death, James fights to escape the madness.

This is a must-read for anyone chained to a desk, in front of a computer, or those with a dream to change careers. With echoes of The Graduate and The Moon’s a Balloon, or even Ricky Gervais’ The Office, IN AT THE GEEK END is hilarious, sometimes bittersweet; the portrayal of a young man’s hopes and dreams caught up in an oppressive world of conformists.
