Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World (Kindle Edition)
I don't usually buy this sort of instant-nonfiction; most of them are just hype for the latest fad, or kow-towing to the successful-business-of-the-day. This book, however, is mostly full of solid research and well-argued ideas, with quite a few sparkles of meaningful insight. I do think it could have been half as long (every chapter has to explain its core concept over and over), but overall it's probably one of the best books I've read this year.
I'd recommend it especially to people involved in interaction design, storytelling, management and, of course, game design, but it really has something for everyone.
