Product Description

Review

"[Celia Pearce's] background as a games designer is evident in the way she respectfully engages readers in clear, vivid prose structured in an original and—can we say it?—entertaining way. From its thoughtful analyses of play and community to its authoritative contextualization of games and virtual worlds, this book repays study on many levels. Enjoy!" from the foreword by Bonnie Nardi

Bought for a class at UWB Aug. 18 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Can be really boring in places, overall it does a pretty good job of teaching entry level anthropology, and talks a bunch about video games. Could be better, but overall not a bad read.
