"At last, an analysis by somebody who truly 'gets it!' We have seen plenty of first-generation books on interactive entertainment, in which an author with expertise in another field presents a bystander's perceptions on the subject.
But this is a second-generation book, written by an author whose background is entirely within the field. Wardrip-Fruin was brought up on computer games and educated in the thoughts of the first generation thinkers.

Looking back at my own ideas from Noah's new vantage point was an educational experience for me."--Chris Crawford, former head of Atari's Games Research Group, and co-founder of Storytron
