Examines the stereotypes American society has regarding 'nerds,' 'geeks,' 'dorks,' and their opposites - jocks or popular kids. Psychotherapist and psychology professor Anderegg discusses why science and engineering have become socially poisonous disciplines, why adults wink at the derision of 'nerdy' kids, and what the cost of this rising tide of anti-intellectualism is to our children and America.
