    I bought this NOOK book hoping to find some useful information that would apply to world of competitive (FPS) gameplay. Description sounded promising as was the title.

    Let me tell you that I have never bought such a poorly formatted and useless in terms of content book, ever. 

    Content was disappointing, to same the least. OK, there were some seeds of common sense here and there but anyone who is looking to played competitevly had learned that (and much more) a long time ago. 

    For the most part though there were pages after pages of detailed description of elements of fighting games that I don't even know would be useful if I played any (I don't). Or attempts of explaining the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu. I don't really think it was useful by any means; I own the "Art of War" and reading it alone made much more sense to me.

    Formatting of the text was horrible. I could not believe such a "book" was released. Paragraphs would start in a middle of the sentence; titles most of the time would be presented as unfinished phrases with no formatting at the end of a paragraph; any highlighted in italics text would have no spaces in front and after it, and so on - you get the idea. I really think any middle schooler would come up with much better formatting, if asked.  

    I respect author's attempt to write something on the topic, but feel like I wasted much of my own time and money for buying and trying to read this book. I ended up deleting it from my library permanently.
