Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg

I just finished reading Simon Pegg’s biography, Nerd Do Well, which I reviewed over at GeekDad.

And while I didn’t want to mention Collect All 21 in that review (there are limits, believe it or not, to my shameless self-promotion), during the Star Wars-related parts of Pegg’s book – and there are many – I found myself smiling at the similarities in the original trilogy’s impact and memories and impressions their place in the childhood landscape of so many of us former ’80s kids.
