I loved the fact that he finally gave into his inner geek! Lol! His accounts of role-playing and the effect it had on him as a youngster are spot on. It had a profound effect on myself. I wish it focused more on RPG and less on LARPing as I find the idea of LARPing a little too full-on!
This book is truly awesome, covering everything to do with fantasy escapism, from D&D to Larping, to Tolkien, MMO's and beyond. Ethan Gildorf gives an awe inspiring recollection of a journey he makes, observing and analyzing the pros and cons of mankinds growing need and acceptance of fantasy canon's and escapist techniques. I would truly like to meet this man one day as he has helped outline a transition in my life, from child to man. A must get for anyone who has ever been involved or been interested in imaginary realms
