The Making of Prince of Persia by Jordan Mechner
The Making of Prince of Persia by Jordan Mechner

I picked this up with no more expectation than finding out some occasional Prince of Persia tidbits, but was surprised to find myself racing through the book. The diaries are well written, engaging, and very natural feeling - occasional references to new people out of the blue just added to the feeling that this was a record written at the time. The factor that makes the book so engaging, I think, is Jordan's doubt and uncertainty about the process of making the game, but more generally about how he should live his life. Very honest, and entertaining.
Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion-Doll&hellip by Kevin Poulsen
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Engaging, 10 Oct 2011
I really didn't expect the book to be just as well written as it was, but it is as absorbing as any comparable work - for my money up there with Steven Levy's classic Hackers. Kevin Poulsen combined meticulous research with a gift for story telling, and is technical enough to satisfy readers familiar with the field, and accessible enough to be readable by anyone with an interest in computers. Brilliant stuff.

Very nice player, but completely useless for anyone that has DVDs from different regions - there is no way to unlock this.
