Good News for Young Geeks!

Got kids? Worried they aren't popular? Turns out, you should probably be more concerned if they are. 

Apparently, what makes people unpopular in the hallways of high school--primarily an unwillingness to conform--tends to translate into success as an adult. 

Check out Alexandra Robbins' The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School (Hyperion, 2011). 

So, young geeks, rejoice! What makes you a total freak now is quite likely your key to a golden future. Later on down the line, your lives will kick ass, while the cool kids will be sucking it.
