About the book

'To sense how subtly sacrilegious these cartoons are, you must imagine an India where parents consider getting a programming job in the US a prospect somewhat superior to finding 72 virgins when you go to heaven. (It's a different matter that those 72 are likely to be programmers from Bangalore.)' - Mahesh Murthy, Founder, Pinstorm, and Managing Partner, Seedfund

'Beautifully drawn and slyly witty, It's Geek 2 Me tech toons seem to be peopled with characters born of a liaison between a middle-aged Dilbert and a hot South-Asian techie. Read one a day to keep all viruses away!'

- Anuja Chauhan, screenwriter and bestselling author of The Zoya Factor and Those Pricey Thakur Girls

'Francis Cleetus knows how to draw nerds. His cartoons about social networking and tech culture keep me LMAO. If you don't know what LMAO means, you shouldn't buy this book!'

- Rob Rogers, Editorial Cartoonist, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

'Perhaps the best part about this compilation is that it stops us - finally - in mid-text and makes us laugh out loud at how ridiculous we have become in allowing technology to nearly unhinge us. In these trying times, Francis makes us laugh at life and the silliness of it all.'

- Debra Smit, Innovation Editor, Pop City Media

it's geek 2 me \?ts-g?k-tu-m?\ n : 1. Indian-American cartoonist Francis Cleetus s version of the Medieval Latin phrase 'Graecum est; non legitur'. 2. A wacky compilation of tech cartoons about people and their off-centre relationships with computers, the internet, smart phones, social networks, MP3 players, gaming consoles, e-book readers, GPS systems and other amazing technologies, all inspired by real life events.
