This review is from: Man, Play and Games (Paperback)
I purchased this book by recommendation from a University lecturer. I found it very useful as I am completing a dissertation on Computer games and gender differences.

This review is from: Man, Play and Games (Paperback)
I bought this book because of the previous customer review thinking it would be relevant to gender differences in computer and videogames. I was very much mistaken. This book was written before videogames had even been invented, it talks mostly about traditional games such as sports and board games and gender aspects of it. If you think this may be relevant to what you need then by all means by this book but if you need discussion of gender issues in videogames then this NOT what you're looking for.
