Good flavour of what games designers do, but can't make you a game designer
on 22 May 2011
This book is good for giving a flavour of all the things that games designers know and how they do their work. So its good for catching the imagination of a teenager interested in games without the "boring" detail to start with. But it will not teach anyone to design or create a game, still less how to program a game into a computer. You will need another book for that.
Overall its well presented and easy to dip into, but its just the starter course...
