Long winded and aimless,
This review is from: Rules of Play: Game Design Fundamentals (Hardcover)
The most irritating thing about this book is it's brilliant presentation (especially the cover), which unfortunately is coupled to a repetitive long winded text which takes ages to get to a point, which it then reiterates eight different ways. As a result the valuable content of this book is simply what is written on each of the chapter summary pages, and much of that is just common sense. Attempts to actually read the main text will simply cause headaches.

Mr. James A. Cox says:
I'd have to disagree with Mr. Aladdin... Game Design Workshop was one of the greatest finds I've come across in literacy aimed at individuals trying to find their way in the wide world of game design... it approaches the very fundamentals that many designers seem to miss out these days... I think it's very useful.
