PROS
- A great author, that makes an effort to write about areas in game design not yet covered by existing literature.

CONS
- Confuses magic with occultism, mythology and religion, and just defines magic as anything supernatural.
- Too much a mix of different topics, lacking a clear organization.
- Does not go into much depth of the history and anthropology that would be be required to create a deeper meaning beyond just manipulating symbols.
- Littered with useless code snippets that are syntactically and semantically incorrect.
- Way too expensive.
- Not readable on a mobile device.
