As a World of Warcraft player for many years, I found this book both entertaining and accurate. As a sociologist, I can truly say that this is a valid academic source for information on the inner workings of a fantasy subculture. As new technologies send more and more of communications and social interactions into a virtual realm, studies of this nature will grow increasingly important, to both the academic community and to society as a whole. I would recommend this to my students!

I found this book greatly enjoyable and interesting as both an avid WoW player and a theory aficionada. Besides being accurate in the details of the game (which is in itself wonderful), Nardi provides thought-provoking insight into other similar experiences. I really really recommend this book to anyone with minimal interest in gaming experience and virtual worlds.

I want to say this is a great book. I can think of a more nuanced review, but I just felt like neglecting to comment on this went on long enough. :-)

This is not what I expected I thought it would be more from the point of view of the character and not from the player of the character
