Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This book is about the business of software and software start ups. Those start ups build games instead of social media connectors (or whatever it is most software start ups do these days).
You will find some interesting stories about the early days of video games and the founders of these companies.
The real value of this book is the experiences of the entrepreneurs who built these gaming companies. I think there are a lot of great lessons and some good advice in this book.
My complaint is (as it is with all these "at work" books) is sometimes, the interviewees say something really interesting and instead of picking up on this an expanding, the interviewer will ask about something completely unrelated. It's frustrating, but only a minor issue.
Gamers at Work fills the role nicely as well. It tells the story of many developers from different eras and their trials as they delivered the marquee games of their generation. This was a great read.
