Editorial Reviews

Review

Jesper Juul's "A Casual Revolution" is a deftly argued and thoroughly researched recommendation.
-Jamin Brophy Warren, "Five Essential Books on Video Games". --The New Yorker

Crowds mobbed Nintendo's booth, clamoring to play it, rushing past the fancier Xbox and Playstation demonstrations. Jesper Juul's "A Casual Revolution" explains what happened, and why.
-Jonathan V. Last --Wall Street Journal

"A trenchant look at the rise of casual gaming."
-Keith Stuart --The Guardian Gamesblog

"A Casual Revolution is indispensable for summarising the current videogame industry, removing casual prejudices at every page."
-Robert Jackson --Leonardo

A Casual Revolution is terrific. A succinct, informative, thoughtful examination of the forces that have been, as its subtitle says, reinventing video games and their players. Oh, and on top of all that, it's just plain fun to read. --Tap Repeatedly
