Product description

Review

"Dave Ewalt's wit, insight and infectious love of D&D make him the perfect guide to the most significant game of the twentieth century. The book is a joy to read."--Tim Harford, author of "The Undercover Economist"

"Long before I made my mark in software, I was a pretty good Dungeon Master, and D&D has played a significant part in my life. In addition to covering much of the deep history of the game that I never knew, Of Dice and Men brought back tons of fond memories, and damned if it didn't make me pull some dusty old rulebooks off the shelf at home."--John Carmack, co-founder of Id Software

"A fascinating window into the storied history of fantasy pen and paper gaming. A must-read for anyone curious about the genre."--Dr. Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare

Dave Ewalts wit, insight and infectious love of D&D make him the perfect guide to the most significant game of the twentieth century. The book is a joy to read.--Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist

"A fascinating history of D&D written by an author who authentically loves the game. Whether you know what d20 means or not you will love this book!"--Felicia Day, actress, producer, creator of The Guild and Geek & Sundry

"The best book I've read since the Monster Manual."--David X. Cohen, executive producer of Futurama

"Dungeons & Dragons has been a huge part of my life. The book sheds light on the world of [D&D co-creator] Gary Gygax, and it also lets the reader into the mind of somebody questioning how cool this game is."--Vin Diesel

"David Ewalt's wit, insight and infectious love of D&D make him the perfect guide to the most significant game of the twentieth century. The book is a joy to read."--Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist

"It's almost impossible to explain how Dungeons & Dragons works, and harder still to explain how it feels. This book comes as close as any I've ever read."--Chuck Klosterman, author of Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs and I Wear the Black Hat

"David Ewalt writes about the world of fantasy role-playing junkies with intelligence, dexterity, and even wisdom. (I am unable to speak to his strength, constitution, or charisma.)"--Ken Jennings, author of Maphead and Because I Said So!
