HASH(0x9f5f8348) out of 5 stars an absolute gem! Jan. 30 2013
By ghandoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
there is something uncovered in this book that i have not found elsewhere. caillois' mapping of play challenges and at many points, exceeds that of huizinga and other play scholars.

HASH(0x9f4c41f8) out of 5 stars Best read after reading Huizinga's April 4 2015
By Zephyr Jorgensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I agree with ghandoff. Best read after reading Huizinga's, Homo Ludens. Note: the read takes some perseverance and it is well justified.
