Editorial Reviews

Spring 2010 American Journal of Play
this work presents fascinating ideas....the volume is replete with ideas on play that span time, the life cycle, and even species. Chapters offer more questions than answers and elevate our curiousity about play, rather than satisfy it, as any good book on play should do.
