Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

nary book that will dramatically change the way you experience life.<br>Finite games are the familiar contests of everyday life, the games we play in business and politics, in the bedroom and on the battlefied -- games with winners and losers, a beginning and an end. Infinite games are more mysterious -- and ultimately more rewarding. They are unscripted and unpredictable; they are the source of true freedom.<br>In this elegant and compelling work, James Carse explores what these games mean, and what they can mean to you. He offers stunning new insights into the nature of property and power, of culture and community, of sexuality and self-discovery, opening the door to a world of infinite delight and possibility.<br>"An extraordinary little book . . . a wise and intimate companion, an elegant reminder of the real."<br>-- Brain/Mind Bulletin
