Format: Paperback
I ordered this book completely out of the blue with absolutely no real idea of what to expect. It turned out that this book was one of the most relevant books I could have ever purchased. In August of 2010, I founded Mighty Rabbit Studios, a small independent game studio in Raleigh, NC. I've spoken with several industry vets about starting the company, but I couldn't have dreamed of ever getting the amount of advice that is contained within this book. This book was designed specifically to help aspiring entrepreneurs in the video game industry, and it excels at that. If you have the desire to open your own game studio, this is a book you must read.

Format: Paperback
Morgan Ramsay provides an insightful and fascinating glimpse into the way the games so many of us love are actually developed. Most people never think beyond "Oh yeah, some geeks just got together and used their nerd magic to make Gears of Duty 4: San Andreas, and bro this is awesome." But the games industry is a mature, developed field with careful thought and inspiration behind what makes hit games. Morgan's connections allowed him access to some of the most important names in the industry, with collective centuries of game design experience among them. It's well worth a read for anyone planning a career in the games industry, or for those who simply want to know a little more about the people who populate it.

A really nicely written insight into the gaming industry and the people that shaped it. Priceless for anyone that wants to get an insight into the industry!
