This Halo book is not one of the best ones I've read but it does make for a good read. Its not a novel but simply some game reviewers, reporters, scientists, lecturers, writers, novelists look on certain elements or aspects of the game but more on its impact on people who've played it. It talks about halo's affect on machinima, what differences there are between Halo's science and real science, the mentality behind master chiefs popularity, religious aspects, how a halo movie would need to play out, a brief history on FPS and how halo effected others, comparing halo to guerilia warfare, how the military is using halo to train its troops and one very interesting article about the greatest halo player in the world, Zyos. So yeah theres quite a bit in there, some interesting, some not but mostly it makes for a fascinating read on well, what the effects of halo are and is written by several literate people who just happen to be fans. Pick it up if your interested in some history/ halo's influence.
