The book focuses on two things. One is prompting you as potential game designer to become very analytical about games that exist already, breaking down what works and what doesn't and why. The second is an iterative approach to game design, starting with a paper version, playtesting early and often.

It contains everything you need to start designing your own games, learning how to balance and polish them, plus interesting interviews with people working professionally in the field. If your focus is actually making original games rather than studying them academically or learning more about them as a player, this is a very useful book.

This is an excellent book that covers all the topics that you might need. It is written in a style that can be fully understood by someone new to the topic of game design. Well worth purchasing.

I bought this for my son as a present, as he wants to design his own board games. He is absolutely thrilled with it. It contains a mine of information, and the case studies are really useful. It tells you all you need to know, including testing, marketing, storyboarding, etc. Highly recommended.
