 You other authors can’t deny
 When a geek walks in with a giant tome
 Or a textbook in your face
 Then your tongue, gets tied in knots
 And you know that text is hot…”

An entertaining, brain-teasing book full of trivia, puzzles, games, and popular songs presented with new lyrics that marry a love of books with a love of classic rock and pop from the 1970s and 1980s.
