"Matthew Farber’s «Gamify Your Classroom» is the definitive guide to game-based learning. Whether you are dipping your toes in the pool or swimming in the deep end, this book is a rich resource. He has left no stone unturned as he provides background of game theory, history of the game industry (commercial and educational) and a tremendous practical overview of what is happening in the game-based learning space. The book is an easy read and demonstrates that he is a walking encyclopedia on the topic. I am truly amazed at the fact that Farber clearly connected with everyone in the field, and ties the work together beautifully."―Steve Isaacs, Middle School Teacher of Video Game Design and Development
