So it turns out that I have a discount coupon for nostarch.com, an online bookseller. I look at their site and come across "The Art of Interactive Design" by Chris Crawford. So, has anyone read this book? Is it worth picking up?
Reviews on Amazon seem fairly mixed. Chris Crawford is known as a well-respected theorist of game design, but the industry seems to have turned its back on him (I think he's been critical of modern game design and products). The reviews seem to reflect this as well, with some calling it excellent, and others decrying it as valueless ranting.
If you have any experience with this book, please let me know.
