In today’s society, games are fulfilling real human needs in ways that reality is not. Hundreds of millions of people globally - 174 million in the United States alone - regularly inhabit game worlds because they provide the rewards, stimulating challenges and epic victories that are so often lacking in the real world. Jane McGonigal argues that we need to figure out how to make the real world—our homes, our businesses and our communities—engage us in the way that games do.

Just got the audio book, but in one word I would have to call it interesting. Being a gamer I related to a lot of segments Jane McGonigal wrote about. I first found out about the book, by watching her interview on G4 TV's show "Attack Of The Show". I myself had to get in front of an audience once, to talk about the positive interaction that games have for people. I hope this small review helps your decision making on buying this audio book. By the way Jane, good job with everything.
