    For experiance vets to people just starting, this book is a must!

    This book is simply amazing. A couple of 30+ sum experiance game desingers have come together to bring there exprience to all diffrent views and problems of the gaming world. Alot of people that have a lot of bright ideas for games dont relise that even tho designing a game is fun, its also chalanging and very stressfull. This book has definatly has oppend my eyes, from such topics as the pros and cons of game saving techiques to exotic stuff like desingin Iteractive Telivision Games. If you are a GD that has been working for 5 years, or a person that dosent know were to put his/her foot down, this book is a MUST!
