Airborne Irish
If you've ever wondered how millions of gamers from across the globe have come to forge a multinational community dedicated to killed pixelized versions of space elves, aliens, and more then look no further than the starcraft bible. Those who have built the community, from Artosis, Grrrrrr, and Day[9] to Blizzard developers and designers pitch in to craft the gospel of how the community formed around the greatest RTS of all time.
Tank Cast
This book isn't a guide on how to become better at Starcraft, it is the story of the biggest game in E-sports. It is full of amazing personal stories and anecdotes. It tells the full history of the now twelve year old legacy of Starcraft. Written by the most avid of fans and the most famous of players and casters, this book is the end all be all of Starcraft stories. If you are passionate or even interested in learning more about Starcraft, I would definitely recommend this book to you.

It sounds like an interesting read, and the amount of contributors is staggering, as most have played or are currently playing in pro leagues, all of them are knowledgeable with the e-sports scene and it’s participants. The novel just shows you how big this thing we call pro-gaming really is.
