This book is excellent. As a Graduate with degrees in philosophy and anthropology I found this book to be quite fun and interesting. The anecdotes serve as a great additions to the understanding of what is going on and it's a book which actively asks the reader questions about what is going on. It doesn't answer most of the questions, but being one of the few anthropology books about video games and the video game industry it's a unique book that furthers the academic pursuit of understanding online video games and the online video game industry.
