Play Money is an unusually illuminating work on the trade in make believe things for very real money. What makes the pages turn so quickly is not just the intriguing subject matter, but the considerable wit, curiosity, earnestness, intelligence, and story telling verve of author Julian Dibbell. He takes you along on his wild ride to a Tijuana on-line sweatshop, across the country and through a cyberworld where dragons and orcs are slayed for booty which sometimes amounts to a real world fortune. This is a truly refreshing read that entertains while engaging and exciting you anew about topics you may have thought had already been explored enough by others- the amazing possiblities of internet play, commerce and globalization. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
