Aside from the ordinariness of a few subcultures, Freak Nation is an interesting and funny book. Stevens runs through the same list of topics for each group, including who they are, where to find them, how to recognize them, biggest controversy, biggest misconception about, et al. She also briefly describes how to tell a fan, a geek, and a superfreak in each subculture. To use Libertarians as a humorous example:
- Sign of fan: Wraps self in flag.
- Sign of geek: Wraps self in flag, then burns flag just because it should be within citizen's right to do so.
- Sign of superfreak: Wraps self in flag, burns flag, objects to taxes on purchase of new flag.
The subtitle of this book is apt because this is the 101st book I have completed in 2012, tying my total from 2009. I honestly didn't plan it that way!
