His talk and the excerpt from the book are both amusing reads. The book's first review on Amazon was dismal, but it looks like it was from a former player of one of the guy's MMORPGs, and ex-MMORPG players are typically feral and bitter.

It looks like a fun book though, and the guy has some major titles under his belt. In stark contrast is Rules of Play, which tries to be The Textbook of Game Design. Makes you wonder what the authors know about making a fun game when the book they write is so damn boring...

Just found another, longer excerpt from this book on Gamasutra:

You need a (free) Gama registration, or good reflexes with your Stop button in your browser to read it.
