  • Why the hype?

    The author has some interesting points on how learning and fun go hand in hand but this book is outdated. You can learn all of these concepts from YouTube. I feel cheated.... waste of money.

  • A Must Read!

    If you want to make games of any kind, or want to learn to get the most out of the games you play, then you must read this book!
    I gave it 4 stars because the author can be a little redundant and belabors some points a little too long... but MINOR criticism for a great read!
