Great Book! Heavy and graphic in detail (in a good way), the book covers the rise of id software and its highly influential games Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake.
However, the story becomes much more about two people - John Romero and John D Carmack. David Kushner goes into a fascinating level of detail and realistic information or fictionalised narrative to give a sense of really being in the room with these guys.
He does end up clearing a lot of "conspiracy theories" and appears to give an honest account of the rise and then middling of id software.
The book lingers at times on dungeons and dragons too much as well as wolfenstein - but at no time I was bored listening to the book.
Highly entertaining, I would recommend this book to anyone - whether they are interested in computer games or not.
