Reviews summary

A really good book with great insight to an interesting subject about games, gamers and how they can contribute to the world

For all she oversells the process there must be something here, we don't need games to generate co-operation, but gaming itself so often is a manifestation of other interests

What jane does here is first offer an explanation of why gaming is good for you (a refreshing change from all the naysayers who are, quite clearly, wrong) before laying down a set of strategies for making like more game like

This book gives you a great idea of how the mind of this particular game designer works
