5.0 out of 5 stars Great book
Like people have already written, this book is more about the industry than how you're going to get into it. I bought the book knowing that, but I found this book very useful, covering many subjects that I wanted to learn more about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy to find out ABOUT the industry, not get into it
Well, I liked this book until I got to the chapter that actually told you how to get into the industry. It explains how the industry works, and is very interesting, however in a nutshell, it says unless you know someone in the industry, forget it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 25 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Break Into The Game Industry: How to Get A Job Making Video Games (Consumer) (Paperback)
Like people have already written, this book is more about the industry than how you're going to get into it. I bought the book knowing that, but I found this book very useful, covering many subjects that I wanted to learn more about. Some of the stuff he discusses in the book are things you can find out by doing simple searches on Google, but I think he has done a good job on collecting information that is crucial when trying to get into this business.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who want to develop a game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, interesting and informative!, 22 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Break Into The Game Industry: How to Get A Job Making Video Games (Consumer) (Paperback)
This book was really good, it tells you all you need to know about the industry before you commit your-self to trying to get into it. The only thing I would say is that it does concentrate too much on 'networking', were you have to know someone in the industry to get in. That said it does give the warnings and the information to decide if it is the right path for you. Also it has very good interviews with people in the industry, a good bit is were it give you a 'day in the life of' for each sector of the industry form real people in the industry.
Would recommend this to anyone looking to enter the industry or to anyone remotely interested in the industry!
